Email Parser will process by default all the incoming email found in an email source. In order to process only a set of emails and ignore the rest you have to create an email filter. Most of the times, email filtering looks like this example:

You can see that the parser “capture email data” is connected directly to the email filter, not to the email source. This is connection is done under the ‘capture email data’ settings and will cause the emails that do not match the filter to be ignored.  If we open the filter ’emails with [ORD] in the subject’ we have the follwoing settings:

filtering emails by subject


This is all you need to set the filter. Of course there are more complex filtering set ups, you can combine filters or even use regular expressions or C# scripts.
