Hi, I recently made a program that retrieves emails from an inbox and
enters the body of those emails into a database using IMAP. I was just
wondering, is there any function in IMAP or other solution where I can
just get the body of the new email and exclude the quoted parts of the
previous emails? for example, currently I’m getting things like this in

Thanks for all your help bud.
^^ here i only want the “Let’s try this one out” and not the text that
comes after it.
Different email providers handle quoting in different ways, so I don’t

after it. I wouldn’t want to do that anyway. Is there an object in IMAP
that handles this? Just curious if anyone has similar experience.
