i am importing my various mailboxes from mail.app into dtpo by using the “Add to DTPO” menu item in mail.app.
now that works but i am wondering how i automatically update/sync the imports? new mail moved into one of the directories should show up in dtpo.
works, kinda. despite the fact i have imported my mailbox before, the mail rule imports into the global inbox and not the directory it should (which is /root/way/down/here/mail/* where * are the various mailboxes). it also does not seem to care about the structure i have in mail.app…
i just realised my attachments aren’t really clickable/open-able.
If you wish, the scripts can be modified to import your mail to a specific location. The scripts are located in ~/Library/Application Scripts/com.apple.mail. Open in AppleScript editor, and change this line at the beginning of the script:
-- POSIX path of destination database. Global inbox is used if not specified.
property pDatabasePath : ""
Click the “text alternative” icon and your messages will be displayed as rich text with clickable attachments.
DEVONthink doesn’t keep a record in the database of every import action, what documents went where, when, etc. So yes, you’d either need a script modification for every destination, or some other approach.
The “text alternative” is not a sticky setting. Stickiness has been requested, IIRC, but is not now an option.
