  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Adapted from Daniele Raybaudi's GetEmail function.
It extracts all email addresses from text.
Added a substitution filter for common characters found surrounding email addresses. Recursive function.

Thanks, Daniele Raybaudi for GetEmail!

12/17/2013 Added some more characters to filter out and fixed GetEmailAddr ( nextText )

10/22/2014 Corrected for blank line if no email addresses.

Small correction, toward the end GetEmail ( nextText ) should be GetEmailAddr ( nextText )

If you have only one address in the text, a blank line appears at the end of the result. Solution:

Case (
  count > 1; word & "¶" & GetEmailAddr (next text);
  count = 1; word;
  ""
)
