Is there a way for HoudahSpot to search messages in Airmail's (http://airmailapp.com) database?  I use Airmail instead of Apple Mail.

Thanks.

Hi!

HoudahSpot searches the Spotlight index. This relies on importer plug-ins to extract content and metadata from proprietary file formats. Such importers are usually included with the application that owns the file format.

Currently the AirMail application does not include a Spotlight importer.

I just asked Airmail about this and they replied "Spotlight feature is available in the High Sierra and you don't have to enable any option in the Airmail to search in the Spotlight, please update the Airmail and Mac and give it some time for indexing and then you can search in it." 

So - my question is - why am I not seeing results from Airmail?

I installed Microsoft Outlook using the same Exchange account and results are 
captured by H Spot.

Thanks

Hi Peter,

macOS 10.13 introduced a new technology called CoreSpotlight. This exists alongside Spotlight. CoreSpotlight allows the Spotlight interface to include results other than files. E.g. individual entries in a larger database / library.

HoudahSpot focusses on file search. It expects every search result to be a actual file (with a name, a path, a file extension, a type, …). HoudahSpot then lets you copy, rename, … that file. Thus it cannot show CoreSpotlight results.


Best,

Pierre Bernard
