Hello! I'm trying to solve a problem, and Alfred seems to be the closest to a solution I've found. This is a variation on searching mail.app messages. I've exported my sizable e-mail archive to .eml files - they're text files, in a format remarkably similar to raw SMTP messages (including attachments being embedded, not in a separate folder). This is the format Outlook (2011?) uses when you drag & drop messages into a folder. I need to be able to search them - really, by attribute, not just string matches (date ranges, from vs. to, subject, perhaps even compound matches). I've been to this thread: However, that code targets Apple Mail mail.app folders and .eml file formats (which are apparently a little different, at least since the attachments aren't embedded). Since I'm not running Apple Mail, I don't have a working point of reference to gauge the inner workings / success. I've added the folder where my message files are stored to the scope for the 'emfrom' workflow, and I've dropped one of the files into the emfrom object so it'll pickup the file type (which it sees as com.apple.mail.email). No joy. Now, "I don't know what I don't know", so basic suggestions welcomed... I'd wager a guess that somewhere there needs to be a definition of how to interpret file types (like, extracting the sender's name). Cheers, Richard
