User Mario wants to archive 120 accounts in Mail Archiver. For testing I usually have some account information at hand. But the account window in Mail is rather small. 

So I thought about getting the data out with my favourite tool - AppleScript.

As always I'll comment the script. Here is the basic version:

tell application id ""
set theAccounts to get accounts
set AccountInfo to {}

repeat with theAccount in theAccounts
set end of AccountInfo to "New account"
set end of AccountInfo to "Name: " & name of theAccount
set end of AccountInfo to "Username: " & user name of theAccount
set end of AccountInfo to "Servername: " & (server name of theAccount)
set end of AccountInfo to "Port: " & (port of theAccount)
end repeat
return AccountInfo
end tell

The repeat loop goes over all accounts. I can access the name of the account, the user name for IMAP as well as the server name and the port.

The result is okay, but it's not the nice list that I want to end up with:Result of getting accounts with AppleScript

But I already solved the problem of making a file with data in the article on printing a list of selected emails in AppleMail. I'm not trying to build a reusable library here. Therefore, a simple copy-paste-and-adapt works fine here. I ended up with the following script:

set this_data to ""

tell application id ""
--get information from accounts
set theAccounts to get accounts
set this_data to "Name" & "," & "Username" & "," & "Servername" & "," & "Port" & return
repeat with theAccount in theAccounts
set theName to name of theAccount
set Username to user name of theAccount
set Servername to (server name of theAccount)
set thePort to (port of theAccount)
set this_data to this_data & theName & "," & Username & "," & Servername & "," & thePort & return
end repeat
--use file on desktop
set this_file to (((path to desktop folderas string) & "apple script data.csv")
--write data to file
my write_to_file(this_datathis_filetrue)
end tell

--routine for writing data to file
on write_to_file(this_datatarget_fileappend_data)
set the target_file to the target_file as string
set the open_target_file to open for access file target_file with write permission
if append_data is false then set eof of the open_target_file to 0
write this_data to the open_target_file as «class utf8» starting at eof
close access the open_target_file
return true
on error
close access file target_file
end try
return false
end try
end write_to_file

The script is quite a bit longer than the first version. Like the script for printing the selected emails the data is put into a string variable. The variable is written to the desktop. After double-clicking the file I get a nice list in Numbers:

Now, why has nobody requested automatic adding of IMAP accounts from AppleMail to Mail Archiver?
