Has the answer to this question changed since the original posts?
I’ve been combing the forum and this seems to be the closest to what I’d like to find out, i.e.- is there a way of sorting or easily identifying archived emails that have attachments without actually opening the emails up? (Note-I’m not wanting indexed attachments.)
When using Apple Mail I file emails daily. Some attachments are worth saving & filing by themselves, but most are just good to reference in the context of the email. The ‘attachment’ icon in Mail’s View>Columns>Attachments has been extremely useful in this way.
I have just imported all my Apple Mail into DTPO for archiving. Is there some tool or method of reproducing that functionality in DTPO that I’ve overlooked? (Forgive me if I’ve overlooked a simple an obvious answer, but I’m just really learning to use DTPO.)
Though I’ll still be using DTPO for other data management, this is important enough to me that lack of this ability would be reason to look at other options for email archiving.
Disappointed to hear that, but good to know I hadn’t missed something simple in the docs. Thank you kindly Bill for your speedy response. Wish me well in learning to marshall the rest of DTPO.
I’d also love to see, in addition to a column showing an attachment flag, a columns showing the tag names.
Finally, the “Author” and “Recipient” fields show a blank if the sender name (as opposed to e-mail address) isn’t filled in. In such cases, it would be nice to show the e-mail address instead of a blank.
I’d like to bump this request for a feature that automatically shows emails with attachments. This seems like a major omission in respect of business users who receive contracts, documents, press releases, price lists, etc. and then have to go through their emails and tag them to easily find emails that include attachments.
If anyone knows of an easy way to do this, I’d be very grateful for suggestions. The lack of this feature is absorbing a lot of my time at the present that I could be using more productively.
I am currently checking DTPO’s email archiving and handling and am now searching the board as I found no option for listing mails with attachments as I couldn’t believe there is none.
Also I would appreciate the option, that attachments get indexed. Having to add them in a second step to the database to get them indexed and creating a note or a link to tie them to the original email they were sent with is just not doable for me in a reasonable time.
