How to Extract Repeating Text Blocks from Emails

Extracting repeating text blocks from emails is something that people do very often.

In case you are selling products with your own web shop, you probably receive an order confirmation or purchase order by email each time you made a new sale. Most of the time, those emails contain important information about the order like the Order ID, the shipping address, the ordered items, the buyer’s name, etc.

Hotels and restaurants can receive booking emails that need to be parsed and entered into the database.

You can also receive aggregate reports as tables that include repeating blocks of information about all orders made during the day, week or month.
