    I also had an ugly and heterogeneous mix of meaningless mbox mailboxes, so I merged them. I then moved some of the messages to folders labeled by year or period (e.g., "2006 and previous"). Such...

    To elaborate slightly (since I just did this), go to EagleFiler's mail library in Finder, look in the files folder, find something ending in .eml, go to the Mac's File menu, select Get Info, and...

    Simultaneous operations?

    Can I work with an EagleFiler email library on other matters while it is, e.g., merging two mailboxes. Can I, for example, read, delete or move mail in other record items? I would think that some...

    Scripts for duplicates in EF

    Do there exist scripts for identifying and deleting duplicate messages in EagleFiler? There are some good scripts now for Entourage, but I believe that they depend on information that is not...

    When I looked in Force Quit, EagleFiler was in red, shown as "not responsive." I don't actually remember, but I assume that there was a beachball as well. I didn't look at the Activity Window. I...

    Choke

    I mean by "choke" that EF would become unresponsive, that the machine as a whole would slow, and that I would have to do a ForceQuit. EF becoming non responsive occurs fairly often. Perhaps I should...

    I have tried this but had EF choke, presumably because of the huge number of messages. Is there a limit on how many can reasonably be selected (10, 100, 1000, 10000)?

    Recommended ways to handle email

    My intended work flow is to automatically copy all Exchange inbox messages to a local inbox, and--once in awhile--move the local inbox to EagleFiler, empty the local inbox, and start over. If done...

    Another Case

    Files would not import from the To Import folder in a new Eagle Filer library today. Most odd. I saw the post, rand repair permissions in Disk Utilities. Although I didn't notice anything...

    Reconciling Eagle Filer and Finder

    Michael, your diagnosis seems correct. Oddly, I am able to find briefings in older EF libraries using fairly obscure terms in the briefings' interiors. The briefings may have been written in...

    I should have added, based on an earlier query, that the problem includes EF having difficulty knowing how to two-way synchronize the .eflibrary files. However, one-way synchronization is obviously...
