I've completely re-organized the script. Now it will pipe multiple selected messages. I apologize for the multiple posts. Unless someone finds a mistake, this is the last version.


Script Follows the next line:
________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________

This script will:

1. Pipe selected messages from Apple Mail to Yojimbo notes
2. Put the date sent (yyyy/mm/dd) & name or address of sender or recipient into Comments
4. Add tags "email" and either "in" or "out"

After running the script, The Comments  will look like:

2007/04/08 <: NYTimes.com  (an incoming message)
2007/04/09 >: Sam          (an outgoing message)

Sorting on the Comments column will sort on date order.

Note: If an account has been deleted, all messages to and from it will be classified & tagged as incoming. To restore the proper classification, create a dummy version of the account and disable it. Only the email address need be correct; the server settings are irrelevant.

(Drummonds very nice script will prompt for tags.)
