Field #3: Exclude All Words Before
For example, you may not be interested in the subject line or the greeting and are only interested in a specific piece of information in the middle of the email for example the text in bold is what you want to see so you would paste int the line:
“Your account is currently past due for the amount of $120.”
This tells our system to exclude everything before that part of the email.
