    I am trying to extract emails from emails sent to my mail(version 9.3) app to create a excel spreadsheet for use in email blasts, etc.

    For example, my friend forwards me an email with an email attached that has the emails I want.

    Does anyone have any advice other that manually copying and pasting. Thanks so much for you help.

    Have them forward all of the original emails, Once received, select all the messages you are wanting for this purpose, then Go to File>Export to PDF(in Mail), I recommend you create a folder for this task... and then point it to save in the folder..(Create a folder named "Emails" on the desktop for example.. and then point the Export function to that folder)... each email will generate a separate PDF file(as tested) which should make it super simple to import into a spread sheet. I hope this helps

    FYI, this will take some time for it to bulk export like this.. So grab a coffee or something while your Mac completes this task.
