[CLOSED] How to Read Email Body Content
I am working on an email listener, where the email body will be having the data which needs to be fetched and used for processing. Using the data from the email body, we need to build a SQL object to get data from the database accordingly.

I am able to get this working if i use the attachment concept of email, but no clue about how to read the body of an email message. Any idea/suggestion how can this be done.

Isn't the email body the document on the bus when it enters your pflow?
