Load header of email next to body in "helper message"

    Hello,

    I am currently working on a project where I extract fields from the subject line of an email message.
    The subject line doesn't load in the "Helper Message" box but I get around it by copying the subject text into the box itself.

    But in general it would be nice for try- and test purposes to be able to load the full message into the "helper message" box.
    By "full" I mean the Header, Body and among others the trace fields such as DMARC/SPF/DKIM result/IP addresses, etc

    regards,

    Edwin

        Hello again, (@liam )

        See my question from December 2021. The question is now opportune again due to an order from a government organization

        Are there any plans to have an option to load the full email including the "Message Headers" in the "Helper Message"?
        Now I can only load the message body, but I need the "Header" for DKIM/DMARC/SPF checks and reports, the message ID and also to use the subject of the email as the content.

        NB. I now open the .eml as a text file and then cut and paste it into the "Helper Message" but that is quite cumbersome.

        regards,

        Edwin

            Hi Edwin,

            For Extracted Fields you specify the 'Extract Field From' - where you can specify any message field (or your own variables) including %Msg_Body%, %Msg_Subject%, %Msg_Headers% etc. Each set of Extract Field actions with different 'Extract Field From' have their own helper message.

            So for example, if you wanted a group of Extract Field's extracting from the %Msg_Subject% you would set your Helper Message on the first one - then any other Extract Field actions extracting from %Msg_Subject% would have the same helper message.

            So there is never a need to paste the full mime.

            What we can do however is if you use the 'Load External File' option in the helper message and select an EML file - it will automatically get the Subject, Body or Headers - based on what is currently selected in the 'Extract Field From' selector.

            Thanks
            Stephen

                Hello Stephen,

                I'm not sure if we talk about the same here ;)

                What i mean is that I want to be able to load the complete message (including body, all headers, subject, etc) into the HELPER window to see if the Extract Field gets the data out right

                Regards,

                Edwin
