Mail Archiver X can export existing archives to the following formats: Evernote, Filemaker, Internal Database, MBOX, PDF, RTF and text. The different options for the archival formats are described below.
Click on the Export button. Then select if you want to export the complete database, the current mailbox, the current mailbox and it's submailboxes or the selected mails. For technical reasons not all export formats are available all the time. Evernote only works for the current selection.
For MBOX, PDF, RTF and Text you can now set the export folder in the Export window instead of selecting the folder after clicking on the Export button.
Important: If you decide at any point in time not to use Mail Archiver X any longer you can access your raw data via the mbox export!
If your archive has become too large you may want to divide the archive into 2 parts. You have to duplicate the archive and then delete some mails from each archive. With the export to Internal Database this process is much easier. Select a couple of mailboxes or mails and export those to a new Internal Database.
Click on the New button to create a new archive. This location is not saved because every export makes a new archive.
For MBOX you can only change the export folder.
RTF is a format that every word processor can read. There is an option, if you want to include the attachments in the export.
Use this option, if you prefer your own archiving database.
The output for Text export is tab delimited text. This is text, where one record is one row of data. Each field is separated from other fields with a tab. The row ends with a return. In the exported text every tab is replaced with the text "\tab" and a return with the text "\return". The encoding of the data can be set either to MacRoman or UTF8.
