Email Header Analyzer – Get more key information on your inbound emails

Clients use mailparser.io for a range of reasons, one interesting use case we were recently asked to cover is parsing of email headers. What does this even mean? Email is composed of the body, (what is written), and is always preceded by an email header. An email header is essentially lines that identify particular info of the email, for example, date, subject, senders email address, who is the recipient of the email, etc. There are optional and mandatory fields. Optional could be the Subject line, CC & BCC fields. Mandatory would include such fields as From, To, Date. This can be critical information for you to capture with our email header parser function, should you be logging these data points from your incoming emails.

Did you know that (nearly) every incoming email was sent from a traceable IP address?
