eMail Extractor allows you to define customized rules in order to filter extracted e-mail addresses exactly the way you want. Use the rule editor to create, edit and delete your own rules. Using the Rule editor is quite straightforward. Just remember the following:
- Rules are made of three elements: a condition, a string and an action.
- A rule triggers its action as soon as its condition matches its string contents.
- If an e-mail address matches a rule, it is automatically marked according to this rule action.
- If a rule is matched all remaining rules get discarded.
Possible conditions are: contains, doesn't contain, is equal to, is not equal to, starts with, ends with.
Possible actions are: good and bad (mark as good or mark as bad)
The string can be whatever you want.
All rules can be activated or de-activated individually using each rule heading check box or all at once using the 'Activate all rules' check box.
