Xl-ParseMails Main Window

The main window is divided in three sections:

Functions

There are four tabs: Parse Headers, Extract, Search and Gephi.

Parse Headers

Parse Haders options

Parse and extract fields from email headers and generate a table report (XLSX, HTML or CSV). Options:

  • Fields: You can select:
    • Typical: Preselected fields that can be set in Settings.
    • All: A column is created for any field that is found. You should get a very big table, but you won't loose anything!
    • Choose: Select the fields you want from a list. You can also select the order of the fields.
    • All Received fields: If you check this option, all received field values will be included and numeroted in the results. Default is to keep the last received value only, which is presumed to be the first in the SMTP communication as you may know.
    • Convert datetime (ISO): In a email header, date and time may be provided in multiple timezones. If you check this option, all datetimes will be replaced by their ISO representation in local timezone (ex.: 2010-01-01 12:55:28 -0400). This format is easily recognized by other tools like spreadsheets. The local timezone can be changed in Settings.
  • Add: Add columns to the table:
    • Source file: It will be the first column. It contains the email file path.
    • List of attached files: List of all attachments in the email.
    • Nslookup: A host or domain name for each parsed public IP address. An active internet connection is required for this option.
    • ISP details: ISP for each parsed public IP address. You must have a valid XL-Whois database to use this option.
    • GeoIP: GeoIP details for each parsed public IP address. You must have a valid GeoIP database to use this option.

Report: This is the folder where the report will be saved. The folder is automatically saved. Available report formats are XLSX, HTML or CSV. For XLSX, you can set the maximum width of a column. Wrap text will be used to show all the data. For CSV, you can choose the separator to use (tabulation, ,, ; or |).
