Save your Apple Mail messages as PDFs.

Overview

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

Email Archiver Pro 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 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 message ID to create a unique, readable file name for the file. Subsequent scans with Email Archiver only add new emails, and thus perform faster.

Email Archiver Pro is written for OS X 10.9 or later. Please contact us if you need a version compatible with an earlier version of the operating system. We also have business and enterprise versions that offer more flexibility and more support options.

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.

I recently gave this app a low rating because it of an authentication issue with Google but since then I checked out their support page to find a workaround. Now I am backing up like before. Having used this app for a couple years now, I rely on it and do recommend it for backing up emails.

The app no longer authenticates Gmail accounts: "Sign in with Google temporarily disabled for this app. This app has not been verified yet by Google in order to use Google Sign In." And when I tried to report this to the developer their own contact form refused to work. To top it all of, the app simply won't continue until I delete the Gmail accounts.

You can continue to archive the other accounts, but you have to click OK instead of Cancel when you are prompted to authenticate with Google. Quite a shame is seems to take weeks for EAP to get "approved" by Google. And then put a message on your website for a workaround. Hey Dev, YOU should fix this not your customers!

Please check out their support page for a workaround. I too was having the same issues but since doing the suggested workaround, I am backing up as normal. Go to https://emailarchiverpro.com/support/

I have used EAP for a few years and it does what it should - creates PDFs of your emails = I. use it for my iCloud accounts plus two others I have and it backs up all the emails in those accounts, or I can set it to back up a folder or other source of email files. Then, when I need to find something I use HoudahSpot and do that = the only problem for me is that I end up having several duplicates of emails [ie the beginning number is the same] and maybe that's my poor creation of settings but I just delete the extras when I wish.

poor performer. I downloaded it few hours ago. It took me more than 5 minutes to browse the files. it didn't configure my mail account at all. I tried Mail Backup X later and it was much easier. Sorry for the downvote Email Archiver Pro

I have been using Mail Backup X for months. It lets me Backing up my emails along with archiving. It doesn't let me look up for alternatives. The developers have known it well what a professional needs with emails, especially on a MAC platform.

Some trouble getting this software to work exactly for my needs. One account always says: "A stable connection to the server could not be established", and I'm sure my settings are correct. Doesn't work on older OS's which I originally planned to use it for. Easiest working with Google Mail, which I have successfully used it for.

I don't think it's fair to rate an app solely based on the system requirements.

The descriptive blurb clearly states that OSX 10.9 or later is required and that if you have an older OS, that a compatible version of the app can be provided. All this seems very fair and generous to me.

Judging an app solely from the perspective of refusing to upgrade your operating system is ridiculous -- especially when the OS upgrades are free.

It clearly states that here and on the website AND says contact support for older versions. You need to revise your star rating. 1 star is totally unfair

I´ve been using this program for about 2 yrs, and I´m satisfied with it. It´s fast and until to day, reliable. Today it starts to give an error message indicating this is a TRIAL VERSION and is designed to only run for a few minutes as a sample. I mailed Palmer Anderson and asked for help, and it came after a few minutes. Never experienced such a quick answer, and now it works like a dream1

I purchased in 2015 for the version 2.8.4. It did works in the beginning and I was happy about it. But in 2016 it never worked, so I uninstalled it. I am wondering if my purchase would only apply to that particular version. It would have been a waste of money if so.

Why spend they money? OX-X's print dialogues allow you to save anything as a PDF?

Absolutely true and that is what I do for critical messages. I have even created a shortcut (Keyboard in System Preferences) to assign CMD-P to "Save as PDF" globally so that all I do is hit CMD-P twice in almost any App to immediately get the Save Dialogue.

However this app does bulk conversion and organization that Save as PDF does not do so for large amounts of mail it could be useful. While I feel that $40 is a bit much for this 'one trick pony' it may be valuable to those who save the majority of their email and want individual access to each of them in an organized fashion without launching Mail.

I also suspect that a person with a good knowledge of Automator could coin this function on their own.
