I started a thread, but ssome questions unanswered.
I am trying to archive emails.
I used tips from here. Two issues
Archives in mailboxes don’t display
On view import - the side bar shows my different mailboxes in mail, together with their subfolders.
However, the mailbox of interest (a gmail mailbox), contains a gmail archive. That archive does not show in the side bar. Therefore, on import, the data base contains sent mail, inbox, and to read folder - but NOT the vast majority of emails, which are in the archive. HOw do I get the gmail archive to display and be imported?
On importing emails, I got message
Couldn’t write message file. Can’t continue import of file.
on 1135 messages. Therefore, not useful archive even of just the sent email.
Which email client do you use?
I normally use Spark, but my Apple mail is working and shows all the folders. When I did view import, Apple mail opened up.
Note Spark does not have professional grade inter-application communication and automation capabilities.
Did you install the plug-in for Apple Mail and enable it?
Yes. I quit Spark, and started Apple Mail. the archive shows up nicely in Apple Mail (I created it in Apple Mail many years ago - now using Spark primarily for easy Omnifocus integration, especially on IOS). I installed the plug in for Apple Mail, and I enabled it. I just rechecked in the preferences of apple mail and it is enabled.
I know Spark doesn’t integrate with DT. However, Apple Mail still shows me the same structure and email as Spark - so I thought DT should be able to integrate
Could you send screenshots of the mailbox structure in DEVONthink and in Apple Mail, maybe via PM? Thank you.
