Email Parser is often used to feed a CRM with contacts captured from the received emails. The emails can be, for instance, form submissions from your website or people requesting information sending you a message.

In this blog post we will briefly explain how to add contacts to Google Contacts from Email Parser.

The steps for settings this up are:

  1. Download and Install Email Parser.
  2. Add your email account and then create a Parser that captures all the contact data from your incoming emails (name, address, etc)

  4. Configure under Zapier which Email Parser fields correspond to which Google Contacts fields.
