Email Archiver

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


Your email is valuable. Use Email Archiver to create a searchable PDF based archive of all your emails, or just a few folders.

Using it is easy. Install, run and click the 'start' button. A large folder containing a PDF version of each email, (with any attachments), is created on your hard drive.

A manual is posted on our web site.
Email Archiver works with Apple's Mail for OS X, storing your emails as PDFs. It makes them compatible anywhere you can open up a PDF, not just with Mail. Emails are stored hierarchically in the same way that your email is organized in Email archiver makes no changes to your Mail Folders. It simply scans through your thousands of email messages, creating a PDF for each one. It does not require Mail to be running, nor does it modify any settings, preferences or files in any way. The PDFs are created in a place defined by you, not in your mail folder.

The PDFs created have the full email header embedded into the PDF for searching purposes. Also, all attachments that are displayed online, such as photos, etc are displayed in the PDF. Any emails with attachments have a folder with the same name including the attachments right beside the PDF. PDFs use the subject line and the email date to create a unique, readable file name for the file. Subsequent scans with Email Archiver only add new emails, and thus perform faster. Emails are also filed into a Year/Month folder system.

The resulting archive of emails is then searchable by the Finder, and individual emails can be located using Spotlight, etc - they are just normal PDFs. Email Archiver also has a Search window that you can use to find emails by subject, author, etc.

Note that you can set up email archiver to only scan certain email accounts or email folders by using the preferences. This is described at our web site. Just select whatever folders to you want to archive by pressing the + button.
