Hi all,I am trying to understand the way Zapier’s email parser processes and stores data. I haven’t been able to find any information on this online. Questions that are especially interesting for me are for example: how long are the forwarded emails stored? What happens with the parsed information after they are continue down the workflow we have set up?Thanks in advance for any information you can provide!BestIsab

Hello,I have a zap set up for zapier email parser to go high level. When I test it it works fine.When I push it live nothing happens when we send an email for data to be parsed and zapped. The error log doesn’t even show that there was an error, it doesn’t even show up in the history.
Hi, I used to manually forward emails from gmail to Zapier email parser to parse name, date, etc., and it worked fine. Recently I set up forward within gmail so that I don’t need to manually forward emails anymore, but the emails received by email parser now contain links instead of plain text, and there is no data to parse. Does anyone know why this will happen? TIA!
Hello,I am new to Zapier and am struggling to get my zap to work. I am attempting to import a .csv file from email parser by Zapier into Webflow CMS. Ultimately, emails will be sent to the parser with .csv attachments every 6 minutes and I need this information to auto update in Webflow. I would like my customers to be able to see this information in live time.I am able to get the email through the email trigger, use the formatter utility to pull the .csv file, but it will not send to Webflow to create a new item. (ValidationError:ValidationFailure).If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.
I want to use Email parser by Zapier to parse an incomming email and update a Knack record with the body of the email. When we send a client an email we would like to put the Zapier mailbox in the bcc field of the email. Then have Email Parser by Zapier extract the following fields: 1) to email address, 2) subject line and 3) the body of the email. We would then use the “to:” email address to look up the customer in our Knack database and create a record with the subject and body. I can’t seem to find a way to grap the “to:” address in the Email Parser. Is this possible? Anyone have any ideas? Thanks! Eric
I’m using the Zapier email parser to zap a scheduled message into a Discord channel daily. The zap works fine except that when it displays the image attachment, it ALSO displays a long zapier url for the image. So it looks horrible. Any idea how to JUST get the image in discord but not the image url?
HiIs there a way to tell the Email Parser to ignore all subsequent text that appears after a specific value in an email?Our Outlook attaches long legal disclaimers after the “yours ...” salutation, that I do not need to parse, and in some cases causes the wrong value to be extracted.I’m currently sending value pairs like:Firstname: JohnLastname: BloggsEmail: firstname.lastname@example.org but the parser can be hit and miss.I can send a more rigid form like XML or JSON or pipe delimited, would be interested in learning if there is a 100% guaranteed way to assure the email body data is extracted properly from an email. Many thank
Currently our customer fills out a Help Form that provides the ability to add an attachment to the form, this form is delivered to our Squirrelmail account where we utilize the email parser to extract the information from the email and create a ticket in our Zendesk account. When an attachment (typically an image) is included with these requests a link to the image is provided in a separate attachment section of the email that the parser does not seem to be picking up, it does see identify an attachment exists however it does not identify the links to the images.
I am trying to create a zap using the email parser as a step in the flow. However, when I try to select “Email Parser by Zapier” in the app selection tool it says “No action available”.I’ve set up my parser template, configured the first step with the mailbox to receive email, and tested the trigger. But when I try to add the Email Parser as the second step I get the “No action available” message.Am I missing something? I appreciate y’all’s help!
Has anyone experienced using Parser where information comes in from a tabulated form (e.g. Smartsheet) and so the structure is pretty clear but then the parsing is thrown off by having 'new' email domains like alumni.school.edu or verizon.net vs the usual .com?
Hello, complete newbie and can’t seem to locate tip or info on something I want to do.Essentially, I want to extract a URL from an order confirmation, go to that URL, and scrape some data from that URL.I have setup the EmailParser from Gmail to filter and forward to the new Parser inbox, then I can extract that URL. That’s where I’m stuck. Is there a way to then take that URL, go to it, and the extract subsequent info from that URL, such as customer name, item ordered, etc. Thanks.
I’m having some issues with the email parser consistently processing emails from TheKnot.com. Some of the fields I’d like to capture are on a full line, and parser sometimes snags up text from the following line instead of stopping at the line’s end. One example is the person’s full name - first and last are together on a single line. The only delimiter is the line break. (Of course, I understand that separating first name from last name can sometimes be a dicey proposition when people have multi-word names.)
I use Zapier Parser to bring over a PDF attachment and update a record in AirTable. The issue is it takes the email attachment and gives it a super long filename in AirTable with letters and numbers. Is there any way to have it be a set filename or custom filename instead? I tried using Format from Zapier but not having any luck.
Hi,I’m using Email Parser by Zapier, to parse an email from Gmail.The parsing is working, but as I’m parsing an email field, instead of only parsing email@example.com it parses firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com). Is there a way to avoid parsing (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org)?Thanks!Regards, Miguel
Hey Folks,Have made a couple of Zaps but this one is eluding me. This started me on the journey Microsoft Teams Webinar Registration to Salesforce | Zapier Community What I’m trying to make happen is - User signs up to Teams Webinar using the Teams registration page.email gets sent to Zapier with registrant infoinfo gets parsed (and passed) to Campaign Monitor and added to a subscriber list.So far, using Sharepoint and Flow/Power Automate, I’ve managed to get Teams to send the relevant info (name/emailaddress/subscription etc) in an email body to me, comma separated- it arrives in the format:firstname, lastname, email, company , yes/no (required, one of these will be present) It’s a messy ‘branded’ microsoft flow email so not just the salient user data, a bunch of other MS branding etc mixed in with it.Next step now is how to get that relevant CSV body data out of the email and into something Zapier can send into Campaign Monitor fields. Looking into Zapier Parser right now - will upda
What's the best practice for clearing out the mailbox history in Email Parser by Zapier? I maxed out my extra templates, went back and deleted old ones so I could save new ones, but it became a lengthy process due to the amount of emails I parse daily.
Looking for assistance in how to Zap a Squarespace post-purchase workflow from Flodesk.I have set-up a mailbox in email parser zap - but emails are not forwarding that come from my squarespace store to that mailbox. Instead it forwarded a contact for submission this morning instead. Odd! I consider myself fairly techy to figure this out, but am having no luck. If there is any work arounds besides this one, I’m open to them - I want to be able to only link 1 product in my store to this zap workflow in Flodesk, not every purchase.Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
