Hi,

is there a way to parse incoming emails in an account for specific key words.

We are getting Email-Notifications from quite a number of customer systems (RAID-Managers, NAS-Sytems, Backup Sytems).

We need a sensor parsing keywords like "warning" or "alarm" to flag status of the sending device.

With PRTG's "Pop3 Email Count" sensor you can set a filter to only count emails with a specific string in the subject.

is this the entire subject-string or is there the possibility for parsing a substring?
