Automatic email import


Is there a way to set email to automatically go into EF? For simplicity’s sake we can assume that I have just one library, though if there is a way to determine which library it would go to that would be a bonus.


There’s currently no built-in feature to do this because there are so many different cases that would need to be handled (which messages to import from which mailboxes and accounts in which mail program, what to do with them afterwards, which library to import into, where in the library to put them, how often to import, etc.). Depending on what you’re trying to do, you might be able to automate this yourself by writing an AppleScript, or partially automate it by importing from a smart folder.

Michael, having the Activity window open does the trick - I can see when import won’t work. Thank you very much!
