Is there a way to create an issue by sending an email?

I have read the email integration, and it seems to scrape every email that comes in, parse it and automatically create issues. I am curious if there is a way to only create an issue if I email some youtrack address - e.g. if I email my-account-id@youtrack.jetbrains.com, with some subject line CREATE ISSUE it will create an issue.

Hi!

I'm Sergey from the Youtrack team.

The best solution would be using the Mailbox integration you mentioned yourself. It lets you connect an email server from which the emails are to be fetched. In this email server, you can select a folder which the integration will fetch the emails from. So all you need to do is set up a filter in your email server that will put the required emails into this folder. Then our integration will fetch them and create issues and comments in Youtrack from this folder. 

If any questions appear, please let me know.
