How to run the Email Parser Windows App in the cloud

Email Parser for Windows can also be run in the cloud installing the application in a virtual private server. This guide gives you some insights on why this could be a good choice for your case and gives you step-by-step instructions on how to migrate your existing settings to a virtual private server.

Why is it better than running Email Parser in my own computer?
  • Your computer does not need to be running to process your incoming emails. Virtual private servers are always on.
  • Access Email Parser remotely, using a web browser or a remote desktop app from any computer.
  • Emails are processed 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. Just like any other internet service.
Why is it better than using a web-based email parsing solution?
  • You can process an unlimited number of emails and have an unlimited number actions per email. There are no additional charges if you process a large amount of emails.
  • You can run any code, script or program automatically when an email is received. Avoid the limitations of sharing the server with other customers as it typically happens with web-based applications.
  • Faster email processing. If you need your emails to be processed more quickly just upgrade your server to have more RAM or a faster CPU. Most of the virtual private servers providers allow to easily allocate more hardware resouces to an existing server.
  • Comply with the most strict data-privacy regulations. As the server is not shared and you have complete control of your environment you can meet the most demanding privacy regulations.
