How it works.

There is now a manual posted on the Email Archiver page at our web site.
Email Archiver works with Apple's Mail for OS X, storing your emails as PDFs. It makes them compatible anywhere you can open up a PDF, not just with Mail. Emails are stored hierarchically in the same way that your email is organized in Mail.app. Email archiver makes no changes to your Mail Folders. It simply scans through your thousands of email messages, creating a PDF for each one. It does not require Mail to be running, nor does it modify any Mail.app settings, preferences or files in any way. The PDFs are created in a place defined by the user, not in your mail folder.

The PDFs created have the full email header embedded into the PDF for searching purposes. Also, all attachments that are displayed online, such as photos, etc are displayed in the PDF. Any emails with attachments have a folder with the same name including the attachments right beside the PDF. PDFs use the subject line and the message ID to create a unique, readable file name for the file. Subsequent scans with Email Archiver only add new emails, and thus perform faster. Any inbox folders are also filed by date.

The resulting archive of emails is then searchable by the Finder, and individual emails can be located using Spotlight, etc - they are just normal PDFs. Email Archiver also has a Search window that you can use to find emails by subject, author, etc.

Note that you can set up email archiver to only scan certain email accounts or email folders by using the preferences. This is described at our web site. Just select whatever folders to you want to archive by pressing the + button.
Spotlight must be ON (it usually is) for email archiver to work.

Please email tech support before posting a negative review. We are also looking for feature suggestions.
