I am moving a lot of emails from Gmail accounts to a DEVONthink 3 database. I’m exporting from Gmail using their “Google Takeout” facility. I then import to DEVONthink 3 using the Import/Unix Mailbox command.
The emails are all very happily in DEVONthink 3 and “Show in Finder” reveals each one to be a .eml file.
My question is, are the attachments also in those .eml files?
I suspect the answer is “yes” because the emails with attachments have much larger .eml files than those without attachments. However I would like to have this confirmed because I want to delete all the emails in Gmail and I want to know where the attachments are before I delete those emails at Gmail.
I’m going to ask another question while I’m here concerning the attachments.
I have found that I can export the attachments to, say, the desktop, by simply dragging them from the DEVONthink 3 window. Is there any other way to export attachments?
