    I know you can "save as" a single message as a text document. But how can I do this for all the messages in my mailbox at once? Can I specify the title? (like: sender, subject)

    thanks

    Just go into the mailbox you want to save messages from, enter Command :)apple:) A (or Edit > Select all), and then click Save As and choose the file type you like + where you want to save it.

    I tried that, but it ends up just saving the very first message and no others.

    Only way I could think of is to use Automator, not sure if that would work either.

    Maybe someone else knows...
