Has anyone tried parsing subscription notification e-mails (signup, recurring payment, cancellation) automatically? Is the format stable enough for such an approach to make sense, or does it change all the time?

I just signed up for a PayPal account and am probably a couple of weeks away from it being verified (international) so I can't do any parser testing of my own. If somebody could post examples of the e-mail formats, that would be great.

We advise against this as email formats aren't guranteed to remain fixed. We recommend using Instant Payment Notification which was designed specifically for this purpose.
