I automatically receive a lot of vcards via email and I want to import them automatically into my contacts.
I coded an AppleScript that will open the vcard file and import the contact. But first I need to download the file, right?
But how can I download an attachment file from an email using AppleScript and rules in mail?
The script bellow saves the files attached in a selection of emails into a destination folder. you can then use these files to add them in Address Book.
set Dest to ((path to desktop folder) as string) & "FMail:" -- the folder to save attached files tell application "Mail" activate set ListMessage to selection -- take all emails selected repeat with aMessage in ListMessage -- loop through each message set AList to every mail attachment of aMessage repeat with aFile in AList --loop through each files attached to an email if (downloaded of aFile) then -- check if file is already downloaded set Filepath to Dest & (name of aFile) save aFile in Filepath as native format end if end repeat -- next file end repeat -- next message end tell
I added many comments to make it clear. then you will be able to adapt it to your needs.
