Smokeball's integration with Outlook is one of the most important features. When you start an email chain from Smokeball, emails are saved automatically to the appropriate matter. If you receive and email in Outlook, it is easy and quick to assign the email and any attachments to the appropriate matter. Once all emails are saved in Smokeball, it is easy to manage, review, and find exactly what you are looking for from the email tab in a matter.
