Filing Script

The MsgFiler Filing Script can supercharge your filing experience in MsgFiler 4. It is an AppleScript that can perform numerous functions that MsgFiler alone cannot do, such as:

  • Moving and copying Gmail messages.

  • Navigating Mail using the keyboard from MsgFiler 4.

  • Archiving messages from the keyboard in MsgFiler 4.

  • Selecting the next or previous message in a Message Viewer after filing non-Gmail messages.

The Mac App Store requires that user scripts such as the MsgFiler Filing Script be installed by the user and not by the application. Sorry for the inconvenience, but we've made things as simple as possible for you.
