Version 1.3.0

Extended Mail Support

It is now possible to drag multiple messages from Apple Mail to Receipts, letting the files drop either on the window or the dock icon.

Receipts will then look out if the mail contains a PDF attachment and import that. If there is no PDF attached the mail message body will be converted to PDF instead, this is expecially useful for invoices e.g. from Apple iTunes or Google Play.

But last but not least it is possible to create Mail Rules in Apple Mail and send the matched mails to Receipts by choosing the "Send to Receipts" AppleScript action in the rule definition. Now your periodical invoices get into Receipts automatically the moment they arrive.

Please take a look at this YouTube Video showing an example.
