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.)

Since this was a little while ago, I wanted to check in to see if you’d managed to solve this using one of the suggestions above, or whether you still needed help here. Please let us know!
I ended up signing up with mailparser.io.
Hello! What actually might be a good option is to run your parsed email through a formatter step. With formatter steps you can use special characters to Find & Replace or Split text at a certain point with the following special characters:
[:space:]- matches space (\s) characters
[:tab:]- matches tab (\t) characters
[:newline:]- matches newline (\n) characters
[:return:]- matches carriage-return (\r) characters
