Archive any selected Mail message as a .emlx file
Authored by: NB on Nov 28, '06 08:22:41AM

Huh? It seems a bit complicated, or I missed the point.
Did you know you can copy the contents of a local mailbox (not a smart or an inbox, the ones that have folder icons) just by dragging it to the Finder? Add some AppleScript and iCal sugar to it, and you automate your emails backup.

You missed the point. That gives you the ability to drag an ENTIRE folder out of Mail to the finder. But can you identify each specific email? No, unless you remember what 80456.emlx conatins...

Can you file them individually on the server and know what they refer to? This script gives you this ability, while still retaining it in Mails emlx format.

We have actually found that saving the above apple script as an application and then placing it in the dock is easier than the keyboard shortcut key vial Act-On...
