sorry, i've written too "simple" my question..

I need to extract all the recipient from a "export mail V2" function .

I have to get all the chars after "To: " , extract only the email address and put them into an array

Can you help me ?

Could you show your flow?

1) found the index of "To: "from the export mail

iniziorigagrezza = indexOf(outputs('Export_email_(V2)')?['body'],'To: ')

2) get 2500 chars from the "To: " rigadest = substring(outputs('Export_email_(V2)')?['body'],variables('iniziorigagrezza'),2500)

3) remove the "To: " from the string rigadestpulita = replace(variables('rigadest'),'To: ','')

4) i'm there ... I need to find a way to extract only emailaddresses from "rigadestpulita"


thank you

Why did you decide that 2500 is the right length of substring?

You have to find first CRLF combination after To: to get the string of addresses.

After that you can use split function to get the array.

ok i've fixed the 2500 char issue and set it to CRLF , now how can i split from a string like that ?
