    OS X 10.9 Mail's GUI function (guess for 10.10 it looks same way):
    Mailboxes plane >>> select a mailbox >>> context menu >>> Export Mailbox...

    One was on the search for equivalent Mail's API - AppleScript scripting or Automator.
    No findings.
    It seems it was not possible currently to automate mailboxes export to a disk file as
    the GUI function described above does it in interactive mode.
    Are these the real facts indeed?

    Automator - recording mode is the only option I found to accomplish the addressed task.
