    Hi All,

    I am using Kettle 4.1 and wondering syntax/Regular expression that should be used to filter emails by subject in step "Email Messages Input".I have a requirement to read emails only with subject containing a particular work in it.

    HI NItin,

    As I understand in the email messages input step,you can filter emails by sender,receipient and subject.So trying to find out if we can filter emails by subject

    For example I want pull any emails having word "WorkOrder" in the subject.

    Create Work orderxxxx
    COmplete WorkOrder zzzz

    Hope that explains my requirement.Just checking if thats possible?Name:  screenshot.jpg

    Never used this step, but I suspect that you need to use a Regexp to filter your subject.
    In order to create a correct regexp, there are few website where you can enter your expression and test it against few lines of data.
