We’ve added a new Ingredient to the Dashboard of Things: you can now create Potions using Microsoft Exchange. Make magic happen with your corporate email! Here’s how it works.


Netvibes Potions allow you to take control of your digital life by programming automatic interactions between devices, apps and data. For example, If this thing happens, then do these 2 things. (If you’re new to Potions, read more on our FAQ page).

One of the most popular services for corporate email accounts, Microsoft Exchange is now supported as a Trigger for Netvibes Potions. When you receive a new Exchange email that meets your specifications, it can trigger any action you choose.

Potion Triggers: Microsoft Exchange (new!)

I receive an email
This Trigger fires every time your Exchange account receives a new email

As always, you can customize your Potion to do exactly what you want. Using the Potion wizard, you can specify different email attributes, including:

  • Address of sender contains
  • Name of sender contains
  • Content contains
  • Subject contains
  • Mail must contain attachments: Yes/No

Potion Ideas: Microsoft Exchange + Netvibes
Now let’s explore some Potion ideas for Exchange. It’s easy to set up your own alerts for important email messages.

Important Email Alert: When I receive a new Exchange email message AND the name of sender contains “My Boss,” then send me Pushbullet alert across all my devices.

You can also use Exchange to trigger other actions, such as sending an email auto-response.

Email Auto-Respond: When I receive an Exchange email from my boss AND it’s after 7:00pm, then email my boss: “I got your email and will respond first thing in the morning.”

Let’s say your team is working on an important project, and you want to keep all the emails together for easy reference. So, you set up a private, password-protected Tumblr page and automatically forward all the emails related to the project.

Email Aggregation: When I receive a new Exchange email message and the content contains “Project Codename”, then post the message on Tumblr.


These are just a few Potion ideas to get you started. With Netvibes, the possibilities are limitless!

How to set up Microsoft Exchange + Netvibes
To use Potions with Microsoft Exchange, you will first need to connect your Exchange email account to your Netvibes dashboard.

Setup requirements:

  • A Microsoft Exchange Server that you can use remotely (outside the LAN)
  • A valid Microsoft Exchange Server Account
  • You must enter your Exchange Server information into Netvibes:
    • Username
    • Email
    • Password
    • Server address
      Note: If you need help locating your server information, please contact your organization’s Exchange Server administrator. If your smartphone is already connected to your corporate email through Exchange, you might try checking your phone’s settings for the correct Server name/address.

You can create your own Potions to automate any task you wish, using Exchange or any other Potion Ingredients. Click here to get started, and the Netvibes wizard will walk you through the easy steps of potion creation. Or contact us for a free demo.
