On Mac we are currently (and have been for a long time now - wink wink) unable to drag emails from Apple mail into TB.

I came up with a workaround for this today. There are two actually but the second one is more of an alternative approach.

1. Open the thought folder CMD-SHIFT-F and drag the email into the folder. It will appear perfectly as an attachment inside your thought.

2. Emails can be dragged to the notes area. The title of the email will become a link that you can click on to open the original email.

This only works with emails though. If you drag an entire conversation thread, you don't get all the emails of that thread, only the latest email. I haven't found a way to find the conversation for that email other than search for it in Mail.

Johan,

The drag and drop request for Apple Mail is well documented and we do hope to incorporate this in the future. Thanks for sharing the workarounds! Option number 1 works well for Outlook users as well.

Thanks,
Matt

In option 1 what happens if the mail is moved in outlook is there still a pointer to the new location and outlook folder.  For example it has moved from server side storage to an archive on your local machine.  (Mac specific )

Dragging files directly into the Thought folder makes them an Internal Attachment so the file will always be in TheBrain even if it is moved or removed outside of TheBrain.
