DT3 Pro: Importing E-Mail from Apple Mail to DT 3


I want to import specific mails from Apple Mail to Devonthink 3 Pro, every once in a while. I usually do this via drag´n´drop.

However, I happened to notice that this only works if the mail is in one of the inboxes of my various e-mail-adresses. When I want to import a message which was sent by me (and therefore resides in one of the “sent e-mails” folders), this does not work,

My workaround is to move the sent e-mail into my inbox, import it from there, and then move it back to the “sent e-mails”. This seems silly to me. Is there a reason why it is structured that way? Or is there another way of handling this?

Otherwise, I would like to request the feature to import e-mails from an given folder from Apple Mail.

best regards,

Did you try using the menu entry in Mail “E-Mail/Add to DEVONthink 3”?


Have you tried using DEVONthink’s View > Import sidebar?

Thank you, that helps! It worked for E-Mails from the “sent”-folder, that’s what I was looking for!

Thank you, I never used that option, I will try it.

You’re welcome :slight_smile:
