Hi!

I have EagleFiler installed in Mojave 10.14.2. Spotlight is properly
indexing EML files, and I can use Cmd-Space and/or mdfind to search
whatever I like. Also the demo of HoudahSpot is working as expected.

*Foxtrot Pro 6.6 is not indexing the content of the EML files*. I have
double check with Cmd-Alt that the third-party metadata importer is
activated, and mdimport -L
list " /Applications/EagleFiler.app/Contents/Library/Spotlight/Eagl eFilerSpotlightImporter.mdimporter "
as active.

I have given both EagelFiler, and Foxtrot Full Disk Access permission
(although I have SIP totally disable).

Tried everything with the EagleFiler mdimporter: change the ownership to
root:wheel, give it +s permission, move it to /Libray/Spotlight. No way.

Does anyone know if there is a fix to this?

Thank you very much in advanced,
José

Hi!,

Ok!. I will answer myself. The problem is EagleFiler. The latest version is
not indexing properly.

The solution: use *MailMate importer* or *MuttLight importer*. Although the
later must be compiled by hand. Both work.

Foxtrot relies on third-party Spotlight importers to work properly, and I
think that CTM * should publish a list of recommended applications to index
the "common" files. *

It doesn't make sense to pay $120 and have to search for two days the
internet to learn how to index a standard file. EML is not some kind of
obscure format. Many applications use it.

Also I am still awaiting help from they support.

Regards.
José

Sir,

We had opened a ticket regarding this, however it is difficult to know everything about third-party metadata importers so we are grateful for your regression of this.

Kind regards,
