How to

  • ο»Ώ<%reGexExpression%> - variable that has the Regex Value saved as Default value. The Regex is "([_\.0-9a-zA-Z-][email protected]([\-0-9a-zA-Z]+\.)+[a-zA-Z]{2,6})".
  • ο»Ώ<%updatedText%> - variable that will hold the modified text.
  • ο»Ώ <%email%> - input variable that will ask the email that the regex expression will use.

If you wish to search the text regardless the case check the Ignore case checkbox.
