This is Grainne from the EAS project at Harvard. I am looking at how we might use ePADD here for donor appraisal and use it's output for processing in EAS. One of the email formats that EAS handles is mbox files, so if we could obtain the result of ePADD appraisal in mbox format it could possibly then be used as input into EAS.
Is it possible to export the output from the appraisal module to an mbox format - and if so will the mbox be lossless?
If not, I can see that you can export from the delivery module into an mbox format. If I were to load the palin.mbox into the ePADD appraisal module, archive it unchanged, load that archive into the processing module, export that unchanged and load that archive into the delivery module and then export to mbox, would the original mbox be identical to the final mbox? If not, do you know how it would differ?
Thanks for any information,
