Mail to FileMaker Importer

High Sierra Note: This application is not functioning in macOS 10.13.x. Unfortunately, it looks like it will require a major rewrite. I'm currently looking at other options for restoring functionality for existing users.

FileMaker 16 Note: FileMaker 16's security model causes an initial problem with Mail To FileMaker Importer. In the privilege set there is a new extended privilege to Allow Apple Events and Active X. By default it is turned off. Turn it on and M2FMI should work normally.

Mail to FileMaker Importer is an AppleScript-based application that can be used to automatically import email data from Mac OS X Mail, Microsoft Entourage, or Microsoft Outlook into a FileMaker Pro database. Within the application’s interface, users can easily configure the database and fields to be used for importing.
Mail to FileMaker Importer can be configured to import the selected messages in the current mailbox, or all messages in a specified mailbox. If specified, messages will be filed into a destination mailbox after they have been imported.Mail to FileMaker also includes the ability to export an import configuration as an email rule script, which may then be configured to be automatically executed by Mail, Entourage, or Outlook when new email messages matching specified criteria are received.A sample "FileMaker Pro" database is supplied with the solution for users that do not have a custom database available. Extensive documentation is also provided.What Users Are Saying
