Parsing CFPOP results

Hello Experts,

Spo i have finally started to look at CFPOP to enhance the commenting system of one of my apps. So far eveything works fine. I tested by creating a little email client in CF to get the message header .. view details and delete messages.

The issue im running into as that all the people sending messages have email signatures that just get added to the end of message without any line breaks or anything.

What I would really like is to remove the signature all together. As well as maintain the line breaks from the email.

Im sure there is a simple way to just parse the body variable but i am drawing a blank.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks a ton!
Joe

Also, just to be clear the signature starts with their full name, title, company name, address, phone etc...

Its different info for each person but same general format

if i understand you correctly - there isn't a column for signature.

you'll need to devise some method of parsing if you consider it important.
i can't think of an "easy" method - one would need to view a handful of emails and possible stumble onto a pattern that one can exploit.

however you do have body, textbody, & htmlbody to look at and choose which one is best suited for your parsing needs.

good luck ...

Would htmlbody force the message to preserve formatting?

you'll need to try to see the differences
sometimes it's the same as body and other times it's not

HTMLbody works for my purpose... as long as the signature stays clean it can be included. Im sure it would be a lot of work to actually strip it out considering they all start with a unique name.
