Can automator do this?

    Just need some pointers.

    I have a pages spreadsheet that needs to be filled out with information out of incoming emails. The emails contain a forwarded email as an attachment, with the information inside. All the incoming emails are formatted the same, with the exception of the information on them, such as email, address, name, phone number, etc. Is there any way to automatically pull the information out of the emails as they arrive, and place them in the correct columns/cells in pages? The emails are formatted with HTML.

    I know I can filter emails using automator (by sender, read/unread status, etc.) But I'm not sure how to automatically open the attachment and copy the right information to the right cells in pages.

    If automator cannot accomplish this, can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Check out Automator World, as I'm sure they have something there (maybe an identical script or something very similar) that will help you out.

    Thanks, I posted a topic over there too.

    Hopefully I can get this figured out!
