Alfred Not Searching Apple Mail

Recommended Posts

I've gone through all the troubleshooting of Alfred and Catalina and it won't search my email, even with the powerpack and the mail workflow installed.  I bought Alfred mostly for one purpose -- searching my mail, because Apple's search tools do such a poor job.  I rebuilt the index, etc., etc.  All I get when I put in em "search words" is Google, etc, etc. -- never mail.

@Tburka Unfortunately, Apple no longer allows third-party apps to access Mail data since Catalina.

It's so nice to know that Apple has removed this functionality so I have to rely on their search tools, which somehow manages not to return all kinds of results relevant to the searches I perform.  Huzzah!

Wait a second -- so what search functionality still exists for Alfred?  I assume that there's a reason my searches of my files with Alfred also seem to produce incomplete results.
