10.4: Use Spotlight comments to tag Mail messages
Authored by: da5idonimac on Jun 08, '05 10:31:28AM

thanks for the great hint. this will help me a lot. if this worked with intelligent folders too, it would be even better. but then again, the poster is certainly not to blame ;)
as a side note: wouldn't it be great to be able to attach an automator script to an intelligent mailbox (as a sort of spotlight-automator integration), so that the script is started, when a new object is added to the intelligent folder?

10.4: Use Spotlight comments to tag Mail messages
Authored by: bellis1 on Jun 08, '05 11:25:34AM

Keep us up to date on the plugin it would be a much easier work around. For the automator tagging I use:

1. get specified finder items
(individual mail folder in library that matches mail folder)
2. get folder contents
3. add spotlight comment

and then I save each of these as single applications. Next I made one automator application which is launches each of those applications:

1. Launch application
2. Launch application
3. etc.

Lastly, I just have scheduled ical to run that application each morning so all I have to do is drag my messages to the correct folder in mail.app and it will get tagged correctly each morning. Hope that makes it a little bit more clear. There must be a simpler way I just could'nt think of it.
