I am looking for a way to convert or parse my eml-files (Outlook email format) to plain-text content. I see how easy we can do that by means of many online converters and other file tools, but I cannot find any action or connector available for Power Automate step.
Any ideas and suggestions are really appreciated!
This blog is the closest thing I could find. It uses a 3rd party connector. Please check with your organization. You wouldn’t want DLP to bite you.
Yes, it is in text format, but it contains metadata as well as some parts of it are encoded.
For example, this is how the source eml-file looks like
and this is what I want to get as parsed plain text.
In other words, I need a tool which lets to work with EML data similar to JSON, for example.
Thank you for helping me!
I'm afraid there is no ready to use tool that can do what you want.
You can write such thing yourself though using Power Automate string and conversion functions.
