How Email Parser works

Email Parser is a tool designed to automatically process incoming emails. It fills the gap between received emails and a database, an excel file or any other program that need to be launched with the email contents. The steps involved in the email processing are clearly shown in the left panel of the Email Parser window. For example:

As you can see, Email Parser divides the process in three well differentiated steps:

  • Emails are downloaded from the email server using the POP or IMAP protocols. Email Parser can also retrieve the email directly from an Outlook folder in your computer.
  • Each received email is analyzed looking for specific pieces of text. This step is also known as email parsing.
  • Finally, a set of processes are launched using the resulting pieces of text from the previous step.

The following diagram shows an overview of the steps involved in the process:
