Hi @pavaninaik12 

There are two parts to this:

You can trigger a zap on an incoming email to Gmail/Outlook/SMTP or even Zapier’s built-in email feature. You can then use “Split Text” formatting steps to extract the domain from the sender address (which will be included in the trigger data).

As for sending it to the API - that depends. What app/service is it? You may be able to use a “Webhook → POST” action step to do that bit.


Whenever I get an email let’s say from I need to extract the domain of the company - say and then with a url which has authentication I need to get the information about the email address by calling the API and send a reply back to the mail providing the company information that we retrieved from the API IN THE MAIL BODY.

@pavaninaik12  What type of authentication does the API use?

Authentication as in with a user name and password

@pavaninaik12 Ok then - you can use a “Webhook → POST” action step to do that bit.
