How to Convert Email to Database Records

If you’re doing business online, you probably maintain a database of your customers, clients, or subscribers. Typically you store the customers’ email addresses, names, order numbers, and purchased products in the database. Plus, you may want to keep the customer’s personal information such as postal addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers and much more in your database. It’s a large volume of data that you need to keep in order — add new customers, remove customers, and update the customer’ information on their request.

Have you ever thought how much time you spend on the tasks such as copying numerous customer’s data from each email and pasting it into your database, manually? It can literally take hours. And as far as your online business is growing, you’ll be receiving more and more emails. One day you may find out that it eats up almost all your working time to copy-paste the customer’s data into your database.

So, why not automate your email processing and convert emails to the database records in minutes? If this is what you’ve always dreamed of, download and install G-Lock Email Processor. This little program will extract any data you want from your messages — customer’s name, email address, postal address, order ID, product name they purchased, purchase date, license type, or whatever you tell it to extract — and add it to your database. It can be a local or remote ODBC compatible database such as MS Access, MySQL, MS SQL, Oracle and others.

You just create an email account within the program from which it will read your emails, add the filter to catch the emails you need, for example, purchase orders, completed web forms, unsubscribe requests, and tell the program what data it must extract from each message and what it must do with the extracted data — write the data to the database, update existing records, or delete records based on the extracted data. For example, each email campaign may generate you a number of unsubscribe requests. You don’t want to waste your time on those recipients but you can’t ignore them either. So, you setup G-Lock Email Processor to catch unsubscribe requests by, for example, the word “Unsubscribe” in the Subject, extract the recipient’s email address, check your database if such email address exists and remove the record associated with this email from the database. While G-Lock Email Processor is doing the job for you, you can focus on more important aspects of your business, or just have a rest you deserved.

The greatest thing is that you don’t even need to start G-Lock Email Processor manually. It runs as a service and automatically starts when you turn your computer to On. You can even make the program work for you 24 hours/7 days a week and have your work done in a timely and accurate manner without spending a single minute of your working time for it.
