Zapier Email Parser & Marketo Report Subscriptions

Hi team,

I have a few reports I'm trying to automate. All the data is built through Marketo reports, but I need to manipulate it after the report is pulled and I'd like to do it in an automated fashion (the whole reason I'm in Marketing Automation am I right?). Anyway, I set up a few email parser inboxes with Zapier and subscribed my various Marketo reports to unique parser email addresses. I apologize in advance for all the screenshots!

My reports generate emails that look like this:

When I forward them to my parser inbox (and remove the forwarding info at the top), it shows up like this:

This is great. I can parse this easily. However, when I change the report subscription to go directly to the parser address instead of forwarding it from my inbox, I get this:

And that's it! Where did the rest of my email go? It's happening with all four subscriptions I set up. If any of you have any experience with this or any suggestions, I'm all ears!  Thanks!

Are you translating the email from HTML to Plain Text in the course of forwarding it?

I wish that was it! But no, I'm forwarding the whole HTML email as-is, except removing the forwarding info that gets appended to the top.

Maybe what's happening is the original HTML is actually just broken enough that until your mail client fixes it up -- which happens automatically, like when you open a mildly corrupt JPEG and save it again -- it can't be parsed?

Can you send me (sandy@teknkl.com) one of the reports so I can see if anything jumps out?

Thanks Sanford! Sorry I missed your reply earlier - we actually ended up going a different route. I think we're going to go with mailparser.io​ per a referral I got this morning.

Thanks for your help though!
