Some emails attempt to update non existent requests


Recommended Posts

We have a format where a certain job type is logged with a subject line however it seems like hornbill either thinks its an update and trys to append to a non existent job or just auto deletes them

Is there anyway or resolving this it has been tested, below are the subject lines of the jobs

PNX - <prime010702240 - Roger Barker > - <end nom> - <msmith> - <priority>

PNX - <prime010088469 - Lynne Lewis > - <end nom> - <msmith> - <medium>

PNX - <prime006908631 - Leonard Max Truppin> - <end nom> - <msmith> - <medium>

PNX - <prime007307558 - Anthony Bourke > - <end nom> - <msmith> - <medium>

PNX - <prime007605335 - Gerald Furniss > - <end nom> - <msmith> - <medium>

PNX - <prime007032267 - Thomas Davies > - <end nom > - <msmith> - <msmith>

PNX - <prime006930439 - Robert Johnston> - <end nom > - <msmith> - <medium>

In your auto responder Update Request rule expression is:

REGEX_MATCH(subject, '.*[a-zA-Z]{2}[0-9]{8}.*')

This means find any string in the subject that has a 2 letter 8 numbers format together - i.e. not separated by anything because of [a-zA-Z]{2}[0-9]{8}. Looking at the following example:

Subject: PNX - <prime010702240 - Roger Barker > - <end nom> - <msmith> - <priority>

The matching is done on the following string:


Because rule expression evaluates as <anything>me01070224<anything>

For example, if you put a space between "prime" and the numbers then it will be no match.

If you have email updates with call references in the subject, usually the call references are a separate word so you might account for this in your rule expression.

Hi Victor

Great Response, I am not very good with setting these things please could you help me with how I would account for these type of subject lines while not stopping the updates to other calls?

The space worked to not delete them however this is now caused duplicate assigned emails to be produced, may not be this but its the only email change I have made today.

and no process has been changed

I have logged with support as well
