Hi guys,

I receive email requests from customers (via apple mail app), generated from a form on my website. The info is, name/address/phone number/what design they would like.

I then type the info manually into excel. Is there a way or a macro that could do this automatically for me?

Many thanks!

Instead of sending it as an e-mail you can design it to write to a mysql database. Once a database is setup and running, you can do all different types of queries at your will.

Perhaps it is possible to create an Apple Script to read it from the Mail Box but I have never tried it.
