Just started using SaneBox for the first time. If you don’t know already (MacSparky talks about it all the time ) SaneBox is basically that looks at your past email behavior and intelligently guesses which email is important to you.
SaneBox also has a feature where you can create your own folders, so I created one called SaneReceipts. As I add receipts to this folder w/in my gmail, it will get smarter at identifying which emails are receipts.
That got me thinking, . Well, if I have SaneBox already organizing my receipts into a gmail folder (Gmail calls them “labels”) then surely I could create an automation that adds those emails into DEVONThink. Just make an automation that watches the folder, runs whenever a new email is added to the folder, and runs a script which copies the email into DT. Easy right?
Well, that’s what I’m figuring out now.
I tried rules in Apple Mail, but it seems that new email in a folder is not one of the triggers. Also tried Gmail rules and it looks like the same problem.
SaneBox has a feature where identified emails can also be forwarded to an email address of your choice, but alas, it doesn’t seem that DT has a forward to DT inbox feature.
Can anybody think of another way I can connect SaneBox and DT? I think it would be helpful for everyone if we can figure out an automation that intelligently identify’s receipts in our email and automatically archives them in a database for us.
