Search for (whether) an eMail (has a specific) Attachment

Hi there,

I need to filter imported eMails that have an Excel files attached.

How am I going to do this?

I use DT’s import script that creates a group holding the the email and spreadsheet as separate files
A search or smart group can be used to identify excel files

You can search for emails with attachments but not specific file types of attachments.

is this feature ever to come any time soon? @BLUEFROG

I get your point @DTLow … but having Devonthink finding specific types of attachments would render this import measure almost entirely redundant :thinking:

I can’t comment on “soon” and it’s the first request of its kind I can recall.
Development would have to consider it.

interesting and surprising at the same time … as I thought that Devonthink is all about automating search procedures like this :slightly_smiling_face:

maybe we’ll see this feature one day
