Importing registration emails to a database

Postby ian » Fri Dec 09, 2005 8:30 am

When users complete the registration form on the Baycastle web site we receive an email with the details entered into the form. This is a common approach used to transfer details from the web form.

Here at Baycastle we use DataSlave to read these emails, extract the contents, validate the data and import into our marketing database.

To achieve this we use OLE DB to read the inbox, a Validate object to strip out emails with the appropriate subject and then a Transform object to map the data to our marketing database. Nothing could be simpler or quicker.

We are happy to share this with you so please email us at info@baycastle.co.uk and we will send you a sample map.
