Differences between the Web app and the Windows app

Both apps work and look the same way. All the general concepts like the left panel, the fields, parsing rules, etc. apply to both. But there are specific features that only work on either the Web app or the Windows app.

The Windows app is more powerful as it does not have restrictions when operating with files on your computer. It supports scripting and calling other programs when an email is parsed. Another important benefit of the Windows app is that there is no limit on the number of email accounts or emails you can process. On the contrary, the Windows app requires a computer running all day long to parse your emails as they are received.

The most notable benefit of Web app is that it is easier to manage as there is no computer to keep running. It also has a built-in email inbox (an email address ending in @inbox.emailparser.com), so you do not need to set up one. The most notable drawback is that it cannot operate with files or programs on your computer and scripting is very limited. It only supports scripting via running AWS lambdas. The other important limitation is that the number of emails per month is limited to 5000.

Most email source types, methods of parsing and actions are supported on both versions. But there are some of them only supported on either the Windows app or the Web app:
