I set up a reminder to file with the contract: send a mail one day before the end of the contract. I wanted DT3 to send me a reminder by email on 13/03/2023. The email was sent today, 30/03/2023. two weeks after the indicated date.
I have a problem. What to think about this?
What do the Mail headers say about the history of it?
Was DEVONthink actually running on the computer in the meantime?
This is a script that sends an email with specific content. It certainly worked today because it sent an email as I opened DT3.
Yes, I work with DT3 for several hours a day.
The source of the script would be useful.
I was simply wondering if perhaps the mail was sent at the right moment but got stuck at an intermediate server. Apparently not.
hmmm. I don’t know where to look for this script. It is not a folder …/Application Scripts/com.devon-technologies.think3/Menu
Reminder scripts are in a separate directory:
I do not see such a script here.
This is what you wrote. @cgrunenberg then asked to see the source code of the script. So we don’t know what script you’re referring to.
That Send Email command does not send the file. It never has. It sends a reference and an item link to the file.
Send email also fails for me
I have it set to repeat hourly
The time field updates each hour; but no mail
fwiw Setting the alarm to Notification works
Is DEVONthink running the whole time?
Yes, I actually watched the reminder time update
Which email client do you use, is DEVONthink 3 allowed to automate it? DEVONthink 3 send emails via the default email client, not on its own.
Please see previous posts:
- I set up a reminder to file with the contract. I wanted DT3 to send me a reminder by email on 13/03/2023. The email was sent 30/03/2023, two weeks after the indicated date. I did not want to send a file. I wanted a reminder by a certain date, but I didn’t get it.
- Yes, DT3 is running every day, all day. This is my primary working tool.
- Yes, I use Apple Mail as my primary client and the only one. Although I suffer cruelly from it because it doesn’t suit me at all. However, DT3 takes priority.
And DEVONthink 3 is allowed to automate it? Is Apple Mail running at the same time or has to be launched by DEVONthink?
