Sparrow as default mail reader


I’ve set Sparrow as my default mail reader.
I’m unable to open mail stored in Eaglefiler - is this due to Sparrow’s ‘IMAP’ structure, or is there a workaround to enable Sparrow to open the stored message?

Thank you,


It looks like there may be a problem with Sparrow not declaring to the system that it knows how to open e-mail files. However, I think you can still drag and drop the message from EagleFiler onto Sparrow’s icon in the Dock. I’ll see if I can find a better workaround for a future version of EagleFiler.

Thank you - dragging to the Dock icon does work

With EagleFiler 1.6, you can choose Sparrow in the Open With menu.
