I am not sure if I am posting in the correct category.
I’m not looking for help with a piece of code but rather some advice with regards to an automation project. My department at work receives daily emails from clients to provide us with market values for funds which we manage. These emails have different types of attachments, some are excel, pdf and text files whereas some of the emails include the market value information in the body of the email. These emails are received to a group mailbox which receives a vast number of other emails which are not relevant to this task.
My question is - is there a reliable way to build a machine learning algorithm or any other sorting tool to sort these specific market value emails and consequently extract these market values to an excel spreadsheet as opposed to manually sorting through these emails everyday? I am merely looking for someone to point me in the appropriate direction, as I am new to using Python. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Please advise if I am being too vague or if more information is required.
