Overview of CTK Email Parser App

Email parsers are the actual computer programs that scans emails looking for important data to be extracted. They are configured for a specific parsing task such as extracting order details or email signatures that need to be loaded into a CRM system.

Given that email parsers are built for specific tasks, it’s important to note that there are two different types of email parsers. There are “structured” and “unstructured” email parsers. Data can be extracted from the subject and email body by using a mail parsing API. In addition, it can extract data directly from email attachments such as PDF files, CSV files, images, and other document types.

Email parsing software can be programmed to extract data fields from incoming emails. The user can turn unstructured email data into structured data that is convenient to feed into CRM software. Email parsing thus eliminates unnecessary manual data entry.
