Filtering incoming emails
Mailboxes often contain email messages that Email Parser does not have to process. For example, you use the same email address for personal use and for email processing. You may also simply want to avoid having Email Parser process spam. In both cases, setting up an email filter is a must.
Email filters can also be used to drive different kinds of emails to specific Email Parser items as it is shown in the screenshot below:
Email filters are created under the email source settings dialog. The most usual and basic email filter is to check if the incoming email contains a given text in the subject:
For more complex filtering needs you can combine multiple email filters. If you have a very specific email filtering needs that cannot be accomplished with the “must contain” or date range fields you can create a custom script that performs this filtering process.
