How to create multivalue field with regex?

Path Finder


I want to push values into a multivalue field.

The raw data are looking like the following:

Sep 6 14:27:56 This is a test from admin@chip.de toaddress: test1@chip.de, test2@chip.de
Sep 7 12:24:34 This is a test from admin@chip.de to
address: test1@chip.de
Sep 7 12:24:34 This is a test from admin@chip.de to_address: test1@chip.de, test2@chip.de, test3@chip.de, info@web.com

Now I want to push all email addresses after the to_address into a multivalue field.

Does anyone know, how to achieve this?
