Email Extractor

How to Use E-mail Extractor?

The E-mail Extractor is a free tool that allows you to extract emails from long strings of text. Simply start by pasting your text into the first textarea. Extracted email addresses will appear in the second textarea.

Each time you make a change to your text, the results will be recalculated.

There are a few options to tweak:

Each email on its own line.

The result will be formatted by adding a line break after each record. This is the default behavior. If you want to change it, just uncheck the 'Each email on its own line' option.

Remove duplicates.

By default, the tool will take care of removing duplicates from the results. If you want to include duplicates, uncheck the 'Remove duplicates' checkbox.

Use a custom separator.

By default, our tool splits emails by the comma (,) character. If you want to change this behavior, you can modify the 'Custom separator' symbol by changing the text input next to it to the desired character. Common other use cases include the semicolon (;) or pipe symbol. You are free to change it to whatever symbol you want, including multiple character ones.

Wrap emails in quotes.

There are use cases when you need to wrap emails in quotes, for example, when dealing with SQL queries. To do this, you can simply check the 'Wrap emails in quotes' checkbox at the top.
