    [Tool] Universal Email Scraper

    Universal Email Scraper

    Update v1-2-3

    • You Added "Custom Server Settings". This will now allow you to use the scrapper not only with Hotmail but with other email providers like Godaddy catchall (etc). As of right now ive only tested it with godaddy catcall email server. So if you are going to try another server other then Hotmail or godaddy catchall i would recommend leaving the "Delete After Scrape" option unticked in case something goes wrong. If using godaddy you only need to put your login details ONE time on the email list side.


    Update v1-2-2

    • Added a new feature called "After finding continue all emails" what this does is continues checking the inbox until all emails in that inbox have been checked even if the item it was looking for was already found. This will be handy when you win multiple prize codes to the same email. If this option isnt checked then once the scrapper finds what it is looking for it will automatically move to the next account so checking this option will allow the scrapper to continue checking all emails in the email account.

    Update v1-2

    • You can now grab a line of text from an email solely based on the line number (This is handy when a gift code or coupon code is the only text that may exist on the line)
    • Fixed issue with bot where if you had more then 4-5 emails in the email account it would skip it.
    • The scraper should also be a bit faster now.
    • May be a few bugs since ive had to change alot of code around but should be pretty solid. Please report any bugs you may come across

    Update v1-1

    • Skipped emails is now truly accounts that were skipped because of bot error
    • Bot will no longer report an email account as "Skipped" if it cannot find the email in the account your looking for but instead will log those emails as "No-Email-Found-Emails.txt"
    • Added a status bar
    • Added a few more stats
    • Scraper now saves settings
    • Added a clear settings button

    About:
    Use this tool to scrape your email accounts for things such as MCR Points, Gift Card Codes, Pizza Codes, etc.

    Bot Features:

    "Find Line That Contains"
    • This option is required. This is the line of text the scraper will look for when trying to grab the information you want to scrape. This line is going to have to be unique to all other lines in the email. If this option is used without any other option in the program the program will scrape the entire line that contains this text.
    • Here is an example of a line you could find
      Code:
      <b style="color: #FFFFFF ; text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: bold;">

    "Split The Line By The Following"
    • Check the "Use" box if you want to use this option. Here is an example of what this option does
    • if you have the following line
      Code:
      <b style="color: #FFFFFF ; text-transform: uppercase; font-size: 10pt; font-weight: bold;">R57RYTFCXZ000W</b><br />
    • You can split that line by a single character say ">". By doing this it will split that line by the character ">" so anything before the first instance of ">" would be 0 then from that instance to the next would be 1 then from that instance to the next would be 2 etc.
    • We want to get as close to the MCR code as possible so the instance we would want would be 1. There is only one ">" before the MCR code so anything before the first ">" would be 0 and after untill the next ">" would be 1
    • Now if we do what we said above you are left with the following
      Code:
      R57RYTFCXZ000W</b
    • The above is everything after the first instance of ">" but before the next instance of ">" So now we will move to the next option of the bot

    "Rules - Will Delete This From Line"
    • These options are simply delete options. Anything you specify in these box will be deleted from the line of code we are currently working on.
    • From where we ended in "Split The Line By The Following" we are left with this code
      Code:
      R57RYTFCXZ000W</b
    • Now we are going to want to get rid of "</b" so that we have a nice clean list. So your simply going to check the first rule box and then put the following in the textbox "</b"
    • Doing this will give you final touches on your scrape to make sure things are nice and clean.

    ...Also

    • If you didn't want to use the split feature you could use this feature as follows.
    • check the first rule box and insert the following code
      Code:
      <b style="color: #FFFFFF ; text-transform: uppercase;  font-size: 10pt; font-weight: bold;">
    • then check the second rule box and enter the following code
      Code:
      </b><br  />
    • This would technically give you the same results. Its simply up to you how you want to do it.

    "More Options"
    • Use the "Delete Email After Scrape" checkbox if you want the emails deleted after you scrape what you need. (If using hotmail accounts the emails actually get moved to the pop folder unless you change your Hotmail options"
    • "Email Retrieval Method" - There is two different ways to retrieve emails. Sometimes one method is "cleaner" then the other. If you find that method two is cleaner while using the test option then feel free to change your method.
    • "Name For Text File" - This is the name of the text file you want the scraped info to be saved into.

    "Current Templates"
    • This will open a box that may have templates for current promotions that are running. These templates are pulled from the BottingForce server and will be updated regularly.
    • If you have a template you would like to send me feel free to pm me the details and i will add it to the list.

    "After Finding Continue All Emails"
    • What this does is continues checking the inbox until all emails in that inbox have been checked even if the item it was looking for was already found. This will be handy when you win multiple prize codes to the same email. If this option isnt checked then once the scrapper finds what it is looking for it will automatically move to the next account so checking this option will allow the scrapper to continue checking all emails in the email account.
