Cannot export messages using export bundle

Reported by Floris | December 23rd, 2018 @ 07:30 AM

Dear Benny,

Thanks for developping and maintaining such a nice email program.

I have a problem when I want to export messages to mbox format, using the Export bundle. The problem does not happen always, but two out of the three times I tried
When I try to 'Select the Export folder' in the Export bundle sometimes (2 out of three occasions, on two different macs), nothing happens.
When I launch MailMate using the terminal, I get the following error message. Do you have any idea what the problem is?

16:20:43@/Applications/MailMate.app/Contents/MacOS ./MailMate
Warning: Failed to run command (64:199: execution error: System Events got an error: Can’t make file "Macintosh HD:Users:floris:Desktop:MailMate Export" into type alias. (-1700)
): #!/bin/bash

EXPORT_PATH=defaults read com.freron.MailMate MmExportPath 2>/dev/null
if [ ! -d "${EXPORT_PATH}" ]; then
EXPORT_PATH="${HOME}/Desktop/MailMate Export" fi

osascript <<END
tell application "System Events"
activate set theFolder to (choose folder with prompt "Please choose a default export folder" default location (POSIX file "${EXPORT_PATH}")) if theFolder is not false then do shell script "defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmExportPath -string '" & posix path of theFolder & "'" return posix path of theFolder end if return "" end tell
