Thread: Apple Mail custom capture script

  1. #1

    Default Apple Mail custom capture script

    I am having a very basic problem creating a custom capture script for Apple Mail. It appears that EagleFiler is simply ignoring the custom script all together. I created a very simple script:
    Code:
    on capture()
    	return {{|url|:"http://www.nytimes.com/"}}
    end capture
    I saved this script as com.apple.finder.scpt, then went to the finder, selected a file, and hit F1. The webpage for the NY Times was imported as expected.

    Then I saved the exact same script as com.apple.mail.scpt, switched to Mail, selected a message and hit F1. This time EagleFiler imported the selected message in MBOX format as it would have if there were no custom script.

    What am I not getting?

    It’s working for me. However, please note that you may need to quit and re-launch EagleFiler after saving an override of a built-in capture script. If it’s already loaded a particular capture script, and that script hasn’t changed on disk, EagleFiler will continue to use it rather than searching every time for additional scripts.

    D'oh. I knew it must be something simple I was missing.

    Thanks.
