    GyazMail

    Some time ago, gerryleonidas mentioned (here) moving GyazMail messages into EagleFiler.

    Has anyone in fact been able to do this?

    I'm on the verge of switching to GyazMail, but would like to be...

    File extension and applescript

    Would it be possible to write a script that would change the file extension of selected files?

    I presume that in principle it would be easy enough, but I know that Finder likes to protest this...

    Ah, right. Unfiled. Forgot about that!

    But the idea of adding a tag to the script appeals to me as well. Could you explain how to do that?

    Thanks for your thoughts on this.

    Have you had a look at Scrivener?

    Not to replace EF by any means, but as a companion. I find it a nearly ideal work environment. And you'll find index cards there.
