Trying to send email using Sharepoint Designer 2007 workflow and email enabled list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a a list that recieves email. I have few fields that shows me the originator: "E-Mail From" and "E-Mail Sender".

    I am trying to create a workflow that will generate an auto reply to the originator but the SPD fails to recognize the email address in these two fields. It's either truncating part of it or uses the html ( href=mailto:Demo@DemoSomething.com) in the To field.

    Thank you,
    Tzach.

  • I can offer your custom activities from Virto Workflow Activities Kit

    Get emails from List field - to grad email from list

    or

    Capture text with regular expression "\w+@[a-zA-Z_]+?\.[a-zA-Z]{2,3}" - to extract email from string

  • Since Virto Workflow Activities Kit is not free, here's a workaround:

    use a calculated column to extract the actual e-mail address. The formula would be something like this:

    =MID([E-mail sender];SEARCH("<";[E-mail sender];2)+1;SEARCH(">>";[E-mail sender];2)-SEARCH("<";[E-mail sender];2)-1)

    Then, use this column to send e-mail to sender.
