Receive and parse email

Post by redstamp »

Can actiona be used to download unread emails and parse the contents?

Thanks,

I have not used Actiona for this purpose but I imagine you can either interface to an email client such as Thunderbird through Mozilla command line or call a python script through Command object.

Regarding parsing of messages there are many python libraries to use.

I have found that Actiona has many undocumented uses. It can be thought of as a "smart connector" between multiple microservices.

Python (and other) scripts can be embedded in Actiona resources.
