Ive been trying most of the regex solutions on this forum, but cant get any of them to work. Im trying to extract emails into a new field without any of the extra junk
field value needs regex:
"John Doe" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
... | rex field=from "(?<from>(?<=<)[^>]+)" | table from, other fields, etc...
im looking for email@example.com without any quotes or gt/lt characters around it in the from field
This should do it.
... | rex field=from "(\<|\;)(?<from>[^\>\;]+)" | table from, other fields, etc...

your regex worked great. Part of the problem was a dumb mistake on my part. i had switched the fields around in the field=email_from "(<|\;)(?[^>\;]+)"
the orig field that had the values is email_from, not from. i wanted to create a new field called from... so i had it backwards.
Thank you for the regex!
