Ah, OK, that’s a 3rd party application I didn’t know about. However, the home page states that links to Fastmail emails open in Mail instead of the web interface. That is not what I find. Links open in the web interface for me – I have just tried it. So I don’t know that FMail is needed – though I didn’t look to see what else it offers.
Welcome to the Hook Productivity Forum , @dixonge . and thanks for sharing that.
Did you try with the AppleScript we provided in the OP, or theirs?
In any event, our developer here who wrote the AppleScript in the OP says “I think Hook works fine with FastMail in browser.” I myself haven’t tried it.
A key question is whether fastmail.com email URLs contain the RFC-5322-compliant message ID, which would make them in principle interoperable between different mail apps [which is kinda the point of email being a protocol…] or whether the IDs are not app-specific (Readdle’s and Outlook’s are app specific, even instance specific in the case of Outlook). Links from Mail, MailMate and AirMail are interchangeable.
I use it mainly as a way to access my inbox offline, partially. I also heavily use aliases in Settings and moving back and forth in the app is faster than the web usually. But now that you mention it I really want a way to access all emails even when offline so may have to look into alternates. Or just use the web site, I don’t know…
For me, Hook worked straight out of the box with the Fastmail web interface, so it never occurred to me to think about it. In fact, I was quite surprised to see the thread. I have configured nothing at all. In fact, I’m not sure I would know how to change anything I just wanted to Hook to an email, so I did.
I wasn’t clear enough in what I wrote, perhaps, but it doesn’t matter. My default email client is MailMate, but I can still get email links to open in the web interface. Though, reflecting, that might be because I have Choosy installed on my system. I’ll have to check the documentation. In any case, I’m afraid FMail is probably redundant and unneeded for me.
First, could you please update your script to the latest one?(164, it has the script for FMail) Then go to Hook Preferences Window-> Scripts->FMail , click on “Reset to Default” button. Try it again and see if it works.
If it still not works,
Could you please
(1) Open /Application/Utilities/Console
(2) Click on Start Streaming
(3) Type hook in the search bar( on the top right corner of Console window)
(4) Select an email in FMail
(5) Invoke Hook on FMail
(6) In Console window, Click menu Editor ->Select all, then Click menu Editor ->Copy
(7) Paste in a text editor and save as a .txt file
(8) Take out private personal information if there is any
(9) Send the file to firstname.lastname@example.org
