I get forwarded emails of leads when I am on call, typically from a variety of sources. I’m trying to set up the Zap so it reads the email I received, it grabs the lead’s email / phone and outputs it into my CRM. (See above, where “parse output phone” has both half of the email address and the phone number, and later there is a “Parse Output Email” that grabs the phone.) Each of these create invalid fields for the CRM, and therefore no result is put in as a lead.
I’ve looked at split/formatting, but those are almost exclusively for emails that I control how it comes in the body (“i.e. Item 1: Mr. Name, Item 2: xxx-xxx-xxxx” etc.). Instead, I get forwarded an email, and in the middle of the email is email address, paragraph break, phone number. Am I missing something? Is there a Parser Zapier how to that let’s me split these when I don’t control formatting, and how?
Incoming emails are originate from Zillow, are sent to my broker/office, and the broker/office then forwards the emails to whoever is on-call (me about 15% of the time). Changing the office middle-man is not an option.

Better to use a more robust email parser app such as Mailparser: https://zapier.com/apps/mailparser/integrations#triggers-and-actions
