I found this open source project some months ago but for the life of me can't remember what it's called. It had a weird name which I believe started with A. I'll list some of the features. Anything that does something like what is described will be acceptable, of course.

Purpose: Document organizer


  • Open source
  • Can host on own hardware


  • Document categorization
  • OCR for scanned documents
  • Email integration (treats emails as documents)

Maybe you mean Amber, "an open-source document search engine with automated crawling, OCR, tagging and instant full-text search".



It seems to fulfill all of your requirements, including E-mail processing.

  • Yes, that's the one! Many thanks! – rath Sep 30 '18 at 1:01
