Reading mbox files and parsing messages directly from Filemaker
The mbox file format is used by Thunderbird for storing emails. I need my app to read and filter emails directly from my Thunderbird client. The filtering would occur by evaluating the header of an email.
If the header fits to the template, then the email would be read into filemaker. I would be looking for values always at the same line and position through to end of line per field, as the emails in question have a fixed format. I will then massage those values and process internally in my Filemaker app.
There are many java script parsers to read emails stored in mbox files, but I would like to implement this directly in Filemaker. Any comments if this has been done before ?
