DevonThink stores the timestamp of e-mails under “Date Created”. EagleFiler does so under “Date Modified”. Thus, when you try importing an e-mail from DT to EF, you can no longer tell when that e-mail first arrived in, say, your Mail.app inbox without opening the message and looking at the contents. (When EF displays a timestamp for such a message in list view, it’s actually displaying the time at which DT imported that message.) What’s more, you’re left with non-comparable information between e-mails imported directly into EF and those imported via a DT database.
Can this problem be fixed? I hope so, as one of the stupidest things about DT is that it’s impossible to include “Date Created” as a column view in its search window (i.e. when you search for ranges of messages in DT, you can’t see when they arrived without opening them).
Also, I’ve had problems importing e-mail directly into EF that have .vcf files attached. EF doesn’t seem to be able to important any contents from such a message - it just brings up an error alert; there’s no .vcf attachment to click, in order to open an external viewer.
Otherwise, great app.
