i would like to get rid of those annoying mail signatures when our employees comment on a ticket via mail. Our format is sth like this:
The actual comment *Firstname Lastname* <the signature>
I want to chop of everything after the comment, so the firstname / lastname part and everything that follows.
I have build the following RegEx and verified that it is working in a text editor supporting regex:
However, when i configure a new mail handler via "Add a comment before a specified marker or separator in the email body" and using this regex, the signatures are not touched at all. Obviously I also tried it with the slash delimited, changing it to this:
But this does also not work at all.
Could it be the issue that our mails are HTML mails and that the regex is applied before the mail is converted to text so that it can be added as comment?
I have been having a similar problem recently and have been using the debug email logs and http://regexr.com/
to validate the regex in the incoming mail handler.
There seems to be an 80 char limit in the regex though.
We mainly use Outlook but there are a number of iOS and Android phone users that don't match the pattern.
I currently have
to try and catch replies to JIRA sent messages
Linux mail appends : On <date> (JIRA) Wrote
Outlook Text emails appends : "Original Message" or "Original message"
Some androids use: From: jira-marin.... (our JIRA email account)
Some people include a line break in their signatures: ____
This regex string complains if I add any more characters to it. The error flashes up briefly when I click save and states that it cannot be more than 255 characters but it actually means 80.
