    Hey guys I'm looking for a program that can extract a certain link from an e-mail and put it in the title. Basically a program that takes in e-mails in a certain format, formats them as I tell it to and then sends them on their merry way.

    This is for work because our internal users want their notification e-mails in a certain way that our current (JIRA if you really want to know) system won't allow.

    So any ideas? What's the simplest way to do this? :hsd:

    well, it sounds like what you want to accomplish is not best done by email.

    could you describe in more detail exactly what you're trying to do?

    Because based on that first post, I'm thinking RSS feed, or a quick program to read from an XML file.

    Has to be done by e-mail.

    JIRA is an issue/bug tracking/ project management system. I'm just wondering if there's a program that can intercept and modify the e-mails it fires off. :o

    If the program uses a database, you could always go looking around in the tables for the email templates. It's possible they exist there. If it is a webapp, and not a compiled binary, then you could browse the code for the email templates also.

    yes, that product is .jsp and uses a JDBC data source, so it would be EXTREMELY easy to do whatever you want with the data... Personally, I would hook in with the existing .jsp and send whatever format you want the email in.
