If I include 'Email Template' in Package.xml why doesn't it download?


I am trying to use the ant retrieveUnpackaged call with the SFDC Migration tool to download some email templates.

I pulled the package.xml from the IDE and for whatever reason the Email isn't being downloaded in this call even when the following is included in the package.xml file:


Is this a quirk of the migration tool? Everything else is being downloaded except this directory.

No errors are reported.

EmailTemplate does not support the wildcard operator; you will have to individually name each template. See the docs at for constructing a project manifest for a complete list of which objects do and do not support wildcards.
