Where does Email Parser saves the configuration?

This help topic applies to the Windows app only.
The web app does not provide access to the internal folder structure.

When running mode is set to “Run in this application”
  • Settings are stored per user. Each Windows user account has its own configuration for Email Parser. Settings are stored in a hidden folder called “Application Data” under the user profile. You can access this folder by typing %APPDATA% in the File Explorer’s address bar (the path may vary slightly depending on your Windows version). Usually, this path is “C:\Users\UserNameHere\AppData\Roaming\EmailParser\”
  • These settings control what you see in the left panel and email history.
  • Opening Email Parser from a different user account will show an empty program as if it’s freshly installed.
When running mode is set to “Windows service”
  • Emails are processed in the background.
  • A system account (not your personal user account) handles the processing.
  • Settings are stored in the system profile (C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Roaming\EmailParser\)

The most important file in this folder is Settings.xml. This file stores the information for all the items you see in the left panel of Email Parser.

Advanced users can directly edit this file with a text editor like Notepad to add or remove items. However, it’s crucial to ensure the edits follow proper XML syntax. Remember to close Email Parser before making any changes.

This method is particularly useful for users with a large number of email filters. It allows them to automate the creation of new filters and potentially integrate Email Parser with other tools.

Editing the Settings.xml file is an advanced task and goes beyond the scope of this guide. For reference, here’s an example of what the XML for an email filter might look like.

     <name>emails from alex</name>
     <to />
     <subject />
     <body />
     <script_filter />
     <script_referenced_assemblies />
     <ids_of_additional_filters />
