Searching a set only with the email scanner

Hello everybody,

for the first time I am trying to filter email-addresses of some webpages, to get in contact with them (no, I don’t want to spam them). I have collected all URLs as bookmarks and have selected this bookmarkfolder in my search as a search set.
Then I have chosen the Email Addresses Scaner hit Start and nothing happens at all. Just a warning beep.

Please tell me, what I am doing wrong, Matze

Did you enter a search term, e.g. “*” (without quotes)?

Using the beta of DEVONagent 2.5, you don’t have to search at all for this task. You can select all bookmarks, open them in tabs, select the right scanner (in the Objects drawer) and run this script:

tell application "DEVONagent"
	set theTabs to the tabs of browser 1
	set theObjects to {}
	repeat with theTab in theTabs
		set theObjects to theObjects & scanner objects of theTab
	end repeat
end tell

Hi Christian, perfect, the asterix solves it! Thanks
