Sending mail to Omnifocus

2 posts in this topic

I'm using the AppleScript below as part of a workflow to get mail messages to OmniFocus. This recently broke. I'm just wondering if anyone has a clue what the issue may be? Not sure if this is due to an Apple update, or an OmniFocus one.

 

Error message

[2017-01-11 10:29:46][input.keyword] Processing output of 'action.applescript' with arg ''

    NSAppleScriptErrorMessage = "OmniFocus got an error: Unable to convert the string \U201cmessage://<03D12B465157E52C189B6D836173733D254AF6F9@AMX>\U201d to a url. Make sure that the string is a valid URL, including quoting characters that aren't valid in URLs.";
    NSAppleScriptErrorNumber = 1;
    NSAppleScriptErrorRange = "NSRange: {1161, 94}";

Pure AppleScript reimplementation of OmniGroup's Clip-o-Tron for OmniFocus.

Hopefully this implementation will be more resilient against OS X, Mail, and OmniFocus updates.
Successfully tested against OS X 10.10.1, OmniFocus 1.10.6, and OmniFocus 2.0.4.

I use the same script in Mail Act-On and it's working fine for me.

 

Looks like a URL encoding problem from the error messages....is this happening with every message?

 

Usually message:// URLs will have the full domain at the end e.g. @mail.gmail.com and the like but your example only has @AMX which would lead me to think there's something with that particular message that's breaking the script.
