Attachments and Mail Integration Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'd like very much to be able to forward an email with a document I need to review to myself and have both the email and the attached document show up in OmniFocus... I just tried this and it didn't work, is this a bug or feature request?

-- Bindu
 
More specifically the text of the email shows up in OmniFocus, but the attachment did not.
 
I would second this request.
 
I looked at the applescript for the mail integration. It looks like I can get the attachments from Mail.app but don't see anyway to add them to the task(s) created in OmniFocus via applescript... Anyone know how to add a file to a Task via Applescript?
 
You can use the attachment element of the rich text class to add attachments to the note of a task programmatically. For more information, this thread on the OmniFocus Extras forum seems useful. (In general, more scripting discussion happens on the Extras forum.)

Sweet, I'll see if I can get the default applescript updated, thanks!
 
This is my first real attempt at applescript so I'm sure there are plenty of places it could be improved (like the fact that I'm hard coding the disk and temp directory names and not handling there being naming conflicts in the temp directory.) So your mileage may vary...

I am desperately trying to get this to work. I don't know AppleScript, so any help would be appreciated.

I don't need to worry about multiple actions. I just want to be able to send an email from my work PC to my MBP and have OF include any attachments in the task.

I tried replacing 'Macintosh HD' with the name of my disk, but this didn't do the trick.

FWIW, I was successful in switching the 'Fwd: ' to 'FW: ' and changing the 6 to 5, so I know I'm saving the script correctly and pointing Mail to it properly.

Can anyone help me get this to work so I can get attachments in my task through the mail rule?

Many thanks in advance,
Ben
 
Here's the script as I currently have it:

This would be no different from how the clip-o-tron in Mail works, right? Is that a script? I wonder if there is code there to use for this?
