Our Messaging service is not based on email, but on Airbnb's API.
The Events flow will check your Airbnb host inbox every minute, and will see if an event has happened in the last minute.
An event is:
- a new booking inquiry was sent,
- a new pre-approval was sent,
- a new request to book was received,
- a reservation has been accepted (including Instant Book reservations).
When the Event service starts, we index your host inbox. We will only detect events after the service is activated, after the host inbox has been indexed.
Events will not have a look at your entire host inbox, but only to the most recent conversations.
The exact number of conversations looked at by Events is updated daily, and depends of the number of listings available on your Airbnb account.
