    Inbound Action- get latest comment from mail

      Hi,

       

      We are using inbound action and in order to correspond with users. today, when we get a reply by mail, we take the email.body_text and enter it to the comment field.

      This mean the whole email is entered to the comment field, including the full correspondence of the mail.

       

      We are looking for a way to take only the latest comment from the email.

       

      Does anyone familiar with how to do it?

       

      Thank you!

          Hi Eli,

           

          You can try something similar as below to get the latest comment from the email and it will work.

           

          var messageContent = email.body_text;

          if (messageContent.indexOf("From")!=-1)

             {

            messageContent = messageContent.substring(0, messageContent.indexOf("From")).trim();

             }

             else

             {

            messageContent = messageContent.trim();

             }

              Hi Vinoth,

               

              Thank you  - i have checked this option, and handling this issue by removing everything below "From" only solve some of the cases ( i was also able to achive it by using the "glide.pop3.reply_separators" property - is there anything that the script you provided handle better than this properly ? )

               

              I have done some tests by reply from mobile device , for example - if i reply to mail from iPhone mail application, there is no "From" in the reply - there is a time stamp of the time and date of the reply, and then, the rest of the message, for example:

               

               

               

               

               

              there might be also other cases, by other mail application ( not sure how it work from Android )

               

              Are you familiar with something more generic to handle this issue?

               

              Thank you for you Help!
