Extract metadata from email

Post by maxsabba »

Following the "Exploring Mayan EDMS" book I was able to create a email source. Now I need to extract information from sender email address and from the subject of emails and associate these information to two metadata.

Some one has experience about that?

Thanks.

  • First you create a document type, e.g. mail
  • Then you set up two meta data types: subject and sender and associate them with the document type you created.
  • When you set up the mail-source you choose the document type
  • And in the two drop downs metadata subject and metadata sender you select the two meta data types you created.
That's it!

Manually I can assign the subject and sender metadata has you described. But I need a way/process, that automatically, extract these metadata from mail and, and assign these values to the downloaded email and attaches.

Thanks
