i am wondering if it is possible to automate the importing of a specific mailbox from mail into a specific group in DTPO, i.e. as soon as a new mail arrives in a specific mailbox it will be imported to the group in DTPO (ideally even if DTPO isn’t running, i.e. using the Sorter)?
I am aware of the ‘add mailboxes to DT’ and ‘add messages to DT’ scripts, but these are run manually, is there a way of automating them and amending them so that the message goes to a specific group?
Also I am aware of the script ‘Mail Rule Action Import’ discussed here:
Is there anyway to automate this so that I can archive the emails already in existing folders. For example, this script does not seem to function if I read the email in Apple Mail while DTPO is closed. I also dont think it works after my existing mail rule has already sent it to an apple mail folder. I would prefer to simply index my mail folders from apple mail, but I also dont seem to be able to do that because the attachments are separate from the email messages in the apple mail folders i would potentially index.
Is there a better way to automatically sync my existing apple mail folders with their attachments to specific groups in DTPO?
Hopefully one day once the beta version has become more stable, some additional effort will go towards making this possible. I am not proficient in applescript or using automator but it seems like this should not be the impossible dream. This functionality would go a long ways towards leveraging the mail archival and search features of devonthink which from my examination of it so far looks to be the best in class information manager thats out.
I am very pleased with assortment of new pre-made templates and examples in the data additions to Devon! Thank you for this, but I would again ask the same question about automated additions of mail that meet very simple conditions (they are filed to a given folder). Is there any technical means to achieve automatic import of these messages into Devon office? If not instant at least every hour maybe?
If someone needs to write automator or applescript to make this happen I would be happy to pay whatever hourly rate it takes to accomplish this, this feature is very important to me. Does it not exist because it is not technically feasible at this time, or only because no one has done it yet?
I have played played around with Annard’s script above (thanks). I am no expert but it would not work for me.
This is a compilation of the original Add message to DTPO script and the suggestion above that does work for me. I have simply added in a line which specifies the uuid of the database. There is a script to identify the UUID of the database in this forum.
Anyhow it works for now - any my mail messages are being filed as they arrive which is cool.
Funnily enough the set unread to true line doesn’t work. I don’t know why.
Suggestions from wiser people?
