Email worker: EmailEvent parsing body?


I’d like to create an email worker that receives the email, parse its body and publish it using a rest API, for instance to re-implement the “mail to topic” feature of discourse.

the EmailMessage seems to offer only a raw content, is there an example to parse the body, eg check the html part, of if there is an attachment or anything more high level than the raw stream?

the documentation:

Did you have any success with this?

There’s an example of parsing the email body here, by an employee, using the postal-mime library: email_worker_parser/src/index.js at main · edevil/email_worker_parser · GitHub

The postal-mime module API has changed, and it now includes built-in support for Cloudflare Email Workers. You can read about using it to parse emails from here:
