Project Description

I need a Python based software that runs on windows as .exe (executable) file. Here is what I want to do:

1. Look at email inbox

2. Find emails that match a criteria

3. Parse each email's content

4. Put this information in a DB or Excel sheet

Basically, here is the use-case:

I have a mailbox that receives daily emails about issues, progress, status. All those emails come in a particular templated format.

What I want to do is, automatically parse these emails and consolidate information in one database or excel file. Sort of a dashboard.

For example:

Project Name | Defect | Progress | % completed |


MyProject-1 | 10 | 5/10 | 50%

MyProject-2 | 9 | 3/9 | 33%


All this information comes in emails. I just need to consolidate it all in one excel file.

Also, we'd need to create a "tab" for each day or add a "date" column. So, that we can look-up status for any particular date.


1. Emails come in Outlook. We'd probably need to create a software that automatically imports emails from Outlook file OR directly interacts with exchange server (I can create a dedicated emailbox on exchange server)

2. I'd like to create a graphical view of the data as well. Use data to plot graph for overall ALL projects (filtered by some criterias) and graphs for each project too.
