Email forms to a usable database

By stephen ·
i have over 5000 e-mail "download response forms" from FormMail and others. I would like somehow to be able to extract this into an Excel or Access database automatically.

It takes a very long time to cut and paste each filed and record.

The formatting of the e-mail responses varies - but contains the relevant information like, e-mail address, name (some as full name some as first/last name, address, telephone no, country, etc.)

Not all response forms are laid out the same.
