Search mail attachments clarification

Hello :wave:

I import my mails into DT. Lots of these mails has attachments (pdf for the most), and I like to be able to search for words/phrases in these files. Searching through the community here, I can find rather old topics about the subject, and a single one from 2021. I have done some testing and when I search for a phrase that I know exists in an attachment, DT finds the appropriate mail just fine. I doesn’t show me the file itself though.

My question:
Is DT searching the attachments as my own test suggest, or would it be better to extract the files as described in the other topics about the subject?

Thanks in advance for any input :pray:

The Pro/Server editions of DEVONthink 3 index the text of attachments indeed and therefore it’s searchable.
