I’m trying to dump a bunch of old messages into DEVONthink, and I’m getting a count mismatch.
Just to confirm what I thought I was seeing, and to remove any IMAP weirdness from the equation…
- I moved a set of messages to a local folder in Mail called “Test”.
- Opening Test, Mail shows 1049 messages.
- I select all the messages in Test (Command-A)
- I do the Command-Option-Control-M command to import the messages to DEVONthink
DEVONthink then helpfully reports an import of 1047 messages, which is obviously two less than Mail is showing. And when I thought I saw it before, it was a bigger difference on a smaller number of messages.
Any idea what’s going on, and/or how to fix this? I obviously don’t want to lose any data in the import process.
Edit to add: Same result with Command-Option-Control-Shift-M to import the folder.
