Hawk Wings and Mail Archiving

I’m a little behind on my reading, so I just noticed that Tim over at Hawk Wings is linking to MailArchiveByDate. I guess that explains the email I’ve received in the past few days asking for help. :-)

Tim comments that my update notes for the 1.2 release don’t convey much meaning. I looked, and sure enough, they aren’t end-user-ready release notes. I’ll try again. The original version of the script asked Mail for the current selection. That meant, if you triggered the action, then changed the selection by clicking on the next message, the wrong message might be archived. The new version uses the selection information passed to the script as an argument, so it is more reliable.

That’s still not very interesting, unless you are writing your own AppleScripts. Suffice to say, if you are planning to giving it a try, download the most recent version posted.
