10.4: Spotlight's rules for indexing plain text files
Authored by: jmichaelson on May 14, '05 02:32:03AM

You don't need to wait. I use the autosave extension in Thunderbird that automatically saves incoming messages into individual .eml files. The methods discussed here could be used to index the .eml files as plain text, but the problem is that Thunderbird has a longstanding bug that prevents it from properly opening .eml files when they're double-clicked. So Spotlight would return the proper .eml file, but you'd have to use a text editor to open it.
