The article is going to describe which settings you need to archive Gmail directly in Mail Archiver.
Ventura has a new section in Privacy & Security with the name of Login Items.
Some apps need to run additional helper apps in the background. I want my backup with Acronis to run every hour, for instance, but I don't want to see what it does every time. These helper apps also need to be started when the computer starts. There are other options like to restart those helpers when they crash. However, malware can also use this mechanism to run themselves.
For this reason you will now get a notification in Ventura when an app wants to run in the background. The the usual fashion Apple has made a mess of the new feature. There are a couple of problems.
MailTags is part of MailSuite by SmallCubed and is a plugin for Mail to add more information to emails - tags, colors, notes and due dates:
With MailTags, you can quickly attach various tag information to easily identify and find messages later. Beyond the simple organization provided by folders and keyword labels, MailTags organization can include dates, notes, projects, importance, and more. There are many features to discover as you explore and use MailTags to achieve email organization nirvana. Here are a few that we think are really important to mention at the onset.
A Mail Archiver user wanted my help because he couldn't archive anymore after he got a new computer. We did a Zoom session and I immediately saw the problem. The IMAP accounts all showed "No mailboxes found". When I tried to log into his accounts I got error messages for all of them.
What was going on? We tried to re-enter the passwords. But no dice. Then it dawned me: was the user using Little Snitch? Yes, he was. We set Little Snitch to temporarily allow all connections and everything was fine.
Today I'm going to look at the application Eagle Filer by C-Command for importing PDFs that were created by Mail Archiver. This is the second app I recommend to use together with Mail Archiver. At the end of November I had a look at the app DevonThink in the article Using DevonTHINK with Mail Archiver for PDFs.
In August 2022 I did some blog articles on exporting emails from Mail:
Exporting emails from Mail: Mail offers different methods for exporting. Mail being Mail has always had problems with pesky details like counting. So it's not a surprise that each export method has slightly different results. I compared the different methods of exporting.
Exporting emails from Mail with AppleScript - advanced topics: In a 2 parter I developed a simple framework for an AppleScript to export the selected emails to emlx files.
Today I'm going to import emails back into Mail. Like with the articles on exporting I'm going to use different types of import.
In the last blog entry we talked about rules in AppleMail. Those are done after the emails have been downloaded. Synchronising the rules over multiple computers may or may not work.
If you only use iCloud then you can filter your emails directly in iCloud at the source. The rules are similar to the rules in Mail but not identical. They are way simpler for example....
Mail Archiver's Internal Database has a built in viewer that shows the emails exactly like an email client does. For PDFs there is no built in viewer. Of course, it's possible to use Finder and Preview for viewing and searching PDFs. But it's much more comfortable to use an app like DEVONThink for the PDFs.
A Mail Archiver user went a bit overboard with testing. Instead of using one small mailbox for testing if the blue coloring works fine she colored all her emails. Ooops! I'll explain what exactly the blue coloring is and how to reverse it. Then I'll apply the script for another property of an email.
