3.5.6   Importing Mail From MailMate

Importing the Selected Messages as Message Files

There is a built-in bundle for importing from EagleFiler. First, go to the Bundles tab of MailMate’s preferences window and make sure that EagleFiler is checked. Then you can select messages in MailMate and choose Command ‣ EagleFiler ‣ Add to import them into EagleFiler.

Importing the Selected Messages as Mailbox Files

Recent versions of MailMate include a bundle that adds the Command ‣ Export command, which exports the messages in mbox format. You can then import the mbox into EagleFiler. This is the most efficient way of importing from MailMate.

Manually Importing Message Files

You can import individual messages from MailMate by dragging and dropping them.

To import a whole mailbox, find its folder in the folder:

/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/MailMate/Messages/IMAP/

and drag it into EagleFiler. EagleFiler will import all the .eml files and skip the .emlh files.

Automatically Importing Messages

You can set MailMate to automatically import all messages added to a particular mailbox (even the inbox) to EagleFiler:

  1. Select the mailbox and choose Mailbox ‣ Edit Mailbox….
  2. Click on the Rules tab.
  3. Click + to create a new rule.
  4. Set the Description to EagleFiler Import.
  5. Click the + button at the bottom of the window to create an action.
  6. Click on Move to Mailbox and change it to Run Command.
  7. Click on No script selected and change it to EagleFiler ‣ Add.
  8. Click OK to save the rule.
