I’m already on Together, but can’t get it to reliably sync data. I suspect this is iCloud’s fault and no the developer’s but there is no dropbox option, so I’m looking to jump ship to a similar product. EagleFiler has been on my radar for months, and I tried a demo many months ago (so can’t retry). Couple questions I have…
(my use case is a desktop, laptop, iPad, iPhone)
1.) .eml search fom ios client?
If I were to store EF files on dropbox (and library file), but only instal the client on one computer, with the intention of accessing files directly through dropbox app on iOS, can I search and view .eml files that have been taken from email archives? I frequently need to reference emails in meetings, and mail.app is painfully slow for finding archived emails on a slow IMAP server. I realize this isn’t an EF app question so much as it’s a workflow question with EF at the center. Same question if I went with mbox archive, but I’m leaning towards eml method so I can open the file with a mail client and reply/forward that message from the archive.
2.) attachments with emails?
General question on email archiving… is there a way to save attachments with the emails? I’ve read that mbox files are text files, and I know .eml files are text files, so where do the attachments go? Do people who have an attachment-rich email archive prefer to export/archive messages as PDF’s with attachments in nested folder by date and message? Can EF do that?
3.) front end for iOS?
Since EF doesn’t have an iOS app, is there another app people use or can recommend to act as a “front end” for those dropbox files that belong to EF? That is, is there a Spotlight-like app for iOS?
I’ve read the comparison to dropbox. From a real world standpoint, is anyone using OmniPresence over Dropbox? I use both for other apps…
