Thank you Lakshman for giving an idea, but the email ids present in the mail body wont follow same format like ‘.test’ and also the domains change. To be precise, i want to get any type of email address that are present in the mail body and the only common thing is ‘@’ symbol and ‘.com’ text.


Try below regular expression:


Hi @harishk5,

If you see in the text the email has a prefix as “to” and the email ends with “for” and this pattern will be followed in all the mails i think

If yes, then use the below regex, which extract all the emai id’s

(?<=to )(.+)(?= for)

Use Matches Activity in user sequence and click on configure regular expression

then you get a window in that select regex as email like shown in image image , give input as your email body and for each out put variable to get the mails or else use ([\w.-]+)@([\w.-]+).([a-zA-Z]+) reqular expression in matches activity do the same. image
