hey @beniz i am building a classifier/model that analyzes emails to understand whether the given email is related to a SaaS service / product receipt or not.
I went ahead and signed up to 20+ SaaS services, turns out, there are 10000+ such services, any idea how I can get the data for "email" receipts/confirmations for a SaaS service? planning to use the Character Based models as per http://www.deepdetect.com/applications/text_model/

@anuragphadke can you be more precise on what you have in mind when referring to 'SaaS services' ? Examples maybe ?

@beniz we are current using the following paid SaaS services: atlassian, cloudflare, pingdom, google apps etc.. Whenever user pays for a service, a confirmation email is sent that looks like: https://gist.github.com/anuragphadke/dd525d876d80e045480bc70729ff3fe0
I want to collect list of subscription confirmation emails for SaaS services.

like the ones in the above gist..
goal is to collect enough of these emails, build a model that can analyze whether an email is part of subscription or not
its a long shot!

@anuragphadke I see, but is this a business case, or for your (company) own use ? Because the way we do for instance is to use dedicated email handles, e.g. pingdom@blabla.com, gce@blabla.com, etc...

@beniz u create a dedicated email for every SaaS subscription? doesn't that get expensive with Google Apps ($49/month/user) ?

you can have as many handle as you want on your own domain

agree on the handle, the pattern i usually see is users using their own email address to signup for a service..

that's why I was asking if it was for a business case, because if you are in control of the handles... you may want to trade that deep net :)
