Why Export Emails to Excel?

There are a couple of reasons why you need to export emails to Excel. Sometimes, users migrate hosts and need to move their inbox to a new web hosting server. If you want to keep your data, sometimes the platform requires you to back your emails up, and you don’t want to lose past email exchanges and necessary attachments. This is one reason to export it into an Excel document.

Excel organizes conversations and acts as your database. You can search for old contacts and conversations by name or date here.

Another reason to export emails is to save your data in a backup file. What happens if you lose access to your email? It happens every day. If this ever happens to you, you’ll be glad you backed up your email data.

A final reason is to save the data in a backup file. Sensitive data that may require easy access for either legal or other business purposes must be backed up. Also, if there’s a catastrophe and somehow your server is wiped, you’ll want a backup.

Gmail has a restriction of 100 emails a day to forward older emails, but we have a blog post for a Chrome extension download that can forward your older Gmail messages.

What are email parsing rules?

Email parsing rules are sets of instructions you create to tell our system where to search for your data, whether that data is in an email’s body or contained within a text-scannable email attachment.

Typically, parsing rules target specific fields or data points within your emails like a tracking number, but parsing rules can extract entire tables of data.

You can use filters to isolate and extract only the data you need. These filters tell our system to look for specific fields and patterns.
