This is a fairly simple question (for all of you), but one I need an answer for. I have several hundred e-mails I'd like to capture into FM. I need to parse unneeded lines and put my field info into FM fields. Here is a sample below of one of the e-mails. Any help will be appreciated. Please excuse my newbeeness.

Hi Tom, and welcome to the Forum.

Use the "Search" (found at the top of each page) to perform a "Search", in "All Forums", using the "Keywords" and the + as follows:

+Extract +Email +Address

Eliminate the 1 in "Weeks" and it will return 34 hits.

Included in the Hits, are even a couple of sample files on how to do this. Check out the one by CobaltSky, because if I remember rightly, it does exactly what you are asking.

Thank you Lee,

I'm afraid I need to up my chops in FM scripting as most of the replys were over my head. I did download POP3it however and I'll try using it to parse the info I need from the e-mails. My only problem is that it hangs when I try to configure it (rotating beach ball). I'll keep crusin' the forum.
