Hi Eagle Filer Forum,
I recently moved to MailMate as my default email program and am currently using Eagle Filer as part of a 30-day trial. Until a month ago I was using Apple Mail and Mail Steward. I don’t find Mail Steward very user friendly and frankly there is something about that company that rubs me the wrong way. I like Michael Tsai whom I have corresponded with as a user of Spam Sieve and based on my limited time using Eagle Filer, I would be very happy if I could make Eagle Filer would work for me. I have read/skimmed the manual.
What I want to do is use Eagle Filer to be a repository for certain email messages like receipts, software licenses, business emails, etc. that I don’t want to save online to an IMAP mailbox/folder/account. With Apple Mail I did this using Local folders but this was problematic for example when I did a clean install.
I trying am trying to migrate all of these to Eagle Filer from Apple Mail/Local Folders and am running into an issue importing email messages from a local folder in Apple Mail. I have a top level mailbox named Receipts that is broken to sub-folders including a mailbox named Software. I also have another top level folder named Licenses that holds emails with software licenses. I cannot get Licenses to import and I suspect it is because it some emails that are duplicates of those in Receipts/Software. I have checked the Preferences in Eagle Filer to Allow duplicate files in library. If I can get this done I will become a licensed user of Eagle Filer which would be great! I don’t mind destroying my current Eagle Filer database and re-importing these Local folders if necessary.
Thank you in advance
