Thanks for the heads up on Squadmail; looks very useful.

Hi, just to mention that you can do this in Ultra Recall very easily.

1) In explorer, Drag and drop main folder of interest into a node. All subfolders, files, etc. are preserved.
2) Drag and drop Outlook folder into a node. Alternatively, you can export mail to a folder regularly and drag that to UR (I use MessageExport).

The nodes in UR need to be synced manually, though. Set up a saved search, and from it hit Ctrl-F5. I do it about once per day.

UR has a good file explorer capability, and email has a form built in. I setup an email folder type so that child items show up with Title, From, Date, etc. It’s perfect.

Best, /Pavi

If I understand correctly what Squadmail does, it represents a different service: it enables to share a (server side) IMAP folder, which means that everyone has access to an up-to-date copy of that folder at any time. By contrast, UltraRecall copies a ‘snapshot’ of the available messages at a certain point.

So, if emails were regular files, sharing via Squadmail is equivalent to Dropbox, whereas sharing via UltraRecall is equivalent to a USB stick.

Is my interpretation (of both approaches) correct, or have I missed something?
