Parsing Email with Obindo

Parsing email with Obindo is fast, easy, and flexible.
Do you have a set of emails that you need to parse data from and route that data into a database or web service such as Google Docs? Obindo can help! Start parsing your email in minutes by following these three easy steps.

Step 1: Sign up for a free Obindo developer account. It's fast, easy, and free. Set up your account by filling out a quick form. It only takes about 30 seconds.

Step 2: Create your Obindo inbox. After you've created your developer account, create your Obindo inbox where you will receive inbound email. You don't need to stand up any servers or learn an API - just fill out the form and you're set to go.

Step 3: Write your email parsing script. Use the Obindo script editor to write any JavaScript you need. Obindo automatically turns every incoming message into a JSON object, so you can easily access any part of your email message. Regular expressions are fully supported, and you can send the results of your script into any web service.

That's all there is to it! From that point forward, you can use Obindo to parse email and perform any inbound email processing that you need.
