Howto: Import selected Apple Mail Messages with Options

I import only selected messages to EF and, because I want to see them in the records list, I’ve had to drag them over. Michael wrote a script that will import selected messages as individual records (http://c-command.com/scripts/eaglefiler/import-from-apple-mail). However, I didn’t find it all that useful because I had to have the right library open and foremost and couldn’t control where the messages went.

However it is simple to modify the script to import with options. Find the line:

import files _paths

and change it to:

import files _paths with asking for options

This has enormously improved my workflow and, of course, was possible only because of the great scripting capabilities that Michael has provided.

Thanks, again, Michael!
