Hello to all,
After searching around and being even more confused than before, I wanted to ask around here.
I would like to cut a certain string (at the same position) out of an email subject and sent it to my smartphone as a notification per Home Assistant.
Sending the value to my smartphone is not a problem for me. What I am struggling with is to create the value of the email as a sensor value.
The subject is: “TR:Box X: Lunchtime Delivery Confirmation”
In this case, I only want to set the letter, in this case “X”, as the sensor value. This value is different in every email.
What I have so far is the function to read the e-mails via IMAP.
sensor: - platform: imap_email_content server: outlook.office365.com name: lunchtime_email port: 993 username: [email protected] password: xyxyxy folder: Inbox senders: - [email protected]
Now I don’t know whether I should create a template sensor or how I can determine the value, in this case the letter.
I would appreciate your help.
