Use Email Archiver to create an archive of all your emails, or just a few folders.

How it works:

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 Mail.app. Email archiver makes no changes to your Mail Folders. It simply scans through your thousands of email messages, creating a PDF for each one.

The PDFs created have the full email header embedded into the PDF for searching purposes. Also, all attachments that are more...

What's New

Version 2.8.1:
  • Fixed a bug that was affecting some users.
  • Fixed an issue if Email Archiver was run for ing periods of time without logging in.

Requirements

  • OS X 10.6.6 or later
  • Apple Mail

Good idea. But PDFs take lots of space, and attachments such as photos can be cut across two pages.

I used Mail Archiver to back up 30,000 messages, which it did without any problems in about 30 minutes. I now have PDFs of each email message stored in folders by year and month, with the date, time and subject in the title. I like that Email Archiver is designed to never delete anything, only archive new messages, so now I can delete the messages out of Mail.

Although I can search with Spotlight or another app, I find the search within Email Archiver is pretty good. The only thing missing is the ability to limit searches by a range of dates, so for that I'm knocking off half a star. Otherwise, I'm more than happy with it.

Any chance you'd support Outlook?

MacUpdate gives the minimum requirement as Lion, whereas the developers website gives it as Snow Leopard.

I downloaded EA yesterday and the program seems to have done all it is supposed to do. However, today I wanted to add more to the it but I cannot find the application in my Macbook, so I'm stuck. Nor could I find a 'help' section to ask for help.

Is it true that MacUpdates version is 2.6.2? The App store has 2.6.6. I've never seen the App store with a more recent version of the program than MacUpdate

Hangs (second time):
files scanned 89000 - files handled 88537 - total 123997. Sorry, but is there an maximum of files EA could handle? First it had to work. Second i wish to select which mailbox and which folder is archived. In general easy to use - because you couldnt select only destination drive and directory. I hope it works anytime - because i need such a software since years...

Oh, i let EA with the mentioned numbers for hours now. Now i look again on my Mac Book - it worked - the numbers are now:
files scanned 94000 - files handled 88537 - total 123997

I wrote my rating, because i go sleeping yesterday and this morning the same numbers are on the screen.

I think the problem is, i coulndt see that the software is still converting. Any display hint would be good.

There is a progress bar, so when it gets all the way across its done. The sofware also puts Done:231565 (for example) emails into the display when its done. There is no practical limit on the number of emails it can handle, but if you have a laptop it will need hours to do 50,000+ emails. It needs to print each to a PDF

Did not realize when reading the description of this app that it archives all your email. You cannot, for example, choose to archive just one folder (which is what I wanted to do). I rarely feel that I've totally wasted money on an app, but I sure did this time.

You can pick which folders to archive in the preferences. The manual is at http://emailarchiverpdf.com/manual .

Basically, you remove the Library/Mail item, then pick one account or subfolder with the + button in the preferences.

This is a really useful app and the header information at the end of the pdf is a great addition. My eyes are normal but the text is added in a font size too small to read without expanding the page. I can appreciate that for most people this is not an issue but if you have to manually search through header info a small font is a real pain.

This app still gets five stars because it is well done and the header font size problem can easily be solved by the developer allowing the user to choose the size when archiving. Even a setting which has two parameters, normal and small, would suffice. I hope the next version will have that feature.
