Additional Information:

To save a Maildrop address for future use, you can make it a Contact in your Email program by following these steps: "How to add Maildrop Email Address as a Contact in your Email Provider".

If you are using Gmail, Clio's Gmail Add-on will be more efficient than using Maildrop. Download it here.

If you are using Outlook, the Clio Outlook add-in will be more efficient than using the Maildrop. Instructions for downloading it are here.

If you want to log an email without associating it to a Matter, click the main "Communications" tab on the left and copy the Maildrop address from there.


  1. Open Matter you want to save an email to.
  2. Click on the Communications sub-tab.
  3. Click the ▼ beside the New button.
  4. Click Copy Matter Maildrop address Screen_Shot_2022-07-19_at_11.25.32_AM.png
  5. Open your email program
  6. Open the email message that you want to save in Clio 
  7. Select "Forward"
  8. Paste the Maildrop email into the To:, Bcc:, or Cc: fields
  9. Send the email.

Back in Clio, you will now be able to view a record of the forwarded email message in the Communications sub-tab of the appropriate Matter. Any attachments from this email will also be saved to the respective Matter.
