Others know a lot more than I do … but for what it is worth, here is how I imported the scripts needed, compliments of tech support. I think this was just after I went from DT to DTPro back in September, so if they weren’t loaded automatically for you during install, it should still be valid. Hope it helps! The Tutorial is really helpful and Help is also quite good. The dialog that follows was because some of the documentation nomenclature varied a little from the actual file names that ended up being included.

I am working my way through the tutorial and wanted to set up a database for my mail. Reading on how to import mail, the instructions say:
To import selected e-mail messages from Apple Mail, do the following:
(1) Open the folder »Mails« in the folder »Scripts (Additional)« on the DEVONthink Professional disk image.
(2) Copy the script »Import Selected Mail« to the folder »~/Library/Scripts/Mail Scripts«…
But, when I open the referenced folders to find the script, I only see the following choices for Mail:
- Add mailbox(es) to DEVONthink.scpt
- Add messge(s) to DEVONthink.scpt
- Mail Rule Action Import
Am I missing something or do I need them all? I will be doing either whole mailboxes or only messages as selected, depending on the subject matter.
Script 1 will let you add whole mailboxes to DT Pro.
Script 2 will let you add one or more selected messages to DT Pro.
Script 3 would let you automate imports by rule – you may not want to try it yet, but may want to play with it in the future.
So go ahead and copy all three scripts.
Tip: These will only import plain text (maybe rich text), without attachments and images. If you want to import the message with those added features, it can be done (one at a time).
 In DT Pro, select Preferences > General. Under “Interface” make certain that the check box for Hide Groups When Inactive is NOT checked.
 Select Tools > Show Groups. Move the Groups panel to the right side of your screen. Then click on its Minimize (yellow) button to send it down to the Dock. It will now be a floating panel that will be available not only in DT Pro, but in other applications, as well.
 Switch to Mail. Click on the Groups panel in the Dock to make it visible.
 Select a Mail message that you would like to import into DT Pro. Double-click on it to open it in its own window.
 Click in the message window, and press Command-A to select all. Now drag the selection onto the Groups panel, to the group or subgroup into which you wish to place the message. Release the mouse button when you have reached the desired location.
Return to DT Pro. You will find the fully formatted message in the group location into which you placed it.
