I am trying out EagleFiler to see whether I should switch from Yojimbo. The two main reasons would be the transparent file storage and the mail archiving facilities.
But I have run into a snag: I have imported 20,000 or so old email messages. Now I’m stumped. When I try to search for content in the mail archives, I only get results when I have selected particular mailboxes in the source listing. When my entire library is selected, no mail messages are returned as the result of a search. That doesn’t seem right.
Similarly, under the tag listing in the Source pane, there are tags like “replied”, which clearly are attributes of many of my mail messages (and they are in fact shown when I have selected a mailbox). But if I select one of the tags in the Source pane, there are no messages shown in the main pane.
Why do the messages not show up when I search or when I select an appropriate tag?
