Use case

Drag email from outlook and save on web application 

Technical logic

  1. When we drag email from outlook it create file with subject name  and file extension .msg
  2. This file we can drops 
  3. Create simple file drop using normal file drop.
  4. Create table to store file and parse the msg file and store data
  5. Display email like outlook on your web

Example to parse file in python


import win32com.client
= win32com.client.Dispatch("Outlook.Application").GetNamespace("MAPI")
= outlook.OpenSharedItem(r"C:\test_msg.msg")

print msg.SenderName
print msg.SenderEmailAddress
print msg.SentOn
print msg.To
print msg.CC
print msg.BCC
print msg.Subject
print msg.Body

= msg.Attachments.Count
if count_attachments > 0:
for item in range(count_attachments):
print msg.Attachments.Item(item + 1).Filename

del outlook, msg

Table example

  1.     email
    1. id
    2. sendername
    3. senderemail
    4. to
    5. cc
    6. bcc
    7. subject
    8. body
    9. attachments
    10. file_data(blob)  - store .msg file to parse

NOTE - case_id can be used as foreign key on table.
