Automatically move data from incoming email to your CRM with mailparser.io and Zapier
It's great when your apps work together, with integrations that let your form save entries to your CRM and your event tool add attendees to your email list. But for many apps, the only way you can get data in and out is via email. Perhaps you have an old form on your site that emails you every time it's filled out, or maybe you're selling products on an eCommerce site that's only way to notify you of sales is via email. Or, perhaps you just want a better way to process the bills, shipping notifications, and other random messages that fill up your email inbox.
mailparser.io is the tool you need. It's a robust parsing engine that can recognize text that's located in the same spot in emails, and let you copy each part of the text separately to use in your other tools.
Say you get an email whenever someone places an order on your site, and their name, order info, and other text is always in the same spot in the emails. mailparser.io could copy each item separately, so you could add their contact info to your address book, print their address on labels, and perhaps even send an email directly to the customer.
Just make a mailparser.io account and start a new *Mailbox*—each of which will manage one type of your emails. Forward one of the emails you want processed to the new email address, and mailparser.io will try to automatically recognize the text you'd want to copy from the email. There are built-in templates for a number of apps that tend to send notification emails, or you can tweak your own template to make sure the text you want is copied.
Anything in the emails can be copied by mailparser.io: subjects, attachments, recipients, and even the HTML headers. In the email body, you can filter through the HTML or plain text copy of the email, using built-in tools to remove empty lines, line breaks, link URLs, and images. Then, you can find common items like emails and phone numbers, extract tables, or set the start and end text to watch for to have everything in the middle copied. You can even refine the parsed results, splitting names, formatting names, changing capitalization, and standardizing postal addresses.
Add every parsing rule you need, and you'll start to get a filter that always figures out what important info is in your email, and saves just that. Then, set your email app to automatically forward emails to your mailparser.io inbox (here's how to forward emails in Gmail with filters), and your emails will be processed without wasting any of your time. You can then download your parsed info in standard file formats, or connect it with webhooks or mailparser.io integrations to save that info into other apps.
Have older emails you want parsed? You could just forward the old emails to mailparser.io manually, or save them as
.eml files and either send them in as email attachments or bulk-upload them with higher-priced plans. And if you ever need to look back at an old email, perhaps to re-parse it, you can do so as well—your account will save emails for a month by default, but you can customize that to fit your needs.
There's no reason to copy and paste data from your emails by hand. With just a few minutes to set up templates, mailparser.io can copy text from your emails automatically, keeping your inbox clear and putting your data to work at the same time.
