Saving Emails in Scrivener

Most of my feedback on drafts comes in the form of emails, so I used to select the email text then using the Clippings system service to save to Scrivener. But just recently I found that you can save emails to Scrivener!

To do this you need the .eml plain file, which you get by dragging an email out of Mail onto the desktop, or if you use an email web UI view the email’s raw source, then save that as the .eml file.

Drag the .eml file into Scrivener and voila.
