    Hi all.

    Have tried searching but couldn't really find anything.

    Please help- I have several emails where I have replied and where the recipient have replied. Now all of this is in a long thread of some 30 emails that were exchanged.

    I want so select only 3 emails to print or to save as a pdf from this whole thread, but can't seem to get it done.

    Is it possible to print selected emails from a long thread, and if so, how do I do this please???

    Thank you in advance.

    If you're using Apple Mail, just select the email you want to print in the conversation view and only that one should print.

    Nope. Tried that. If I select the conversation all replies print. From a conversation I wish to print only selected replies.

    Sorry for not being very clear

    Don't select the conversation, select the individual email.

    You mean like using shift and manually selecting the lines in the email that I want to print?

    See how I have a conversation selected on the left? Then in the right-hand pane, I have selected one email in that conversation, signified by a light blue box around it. That's how you select one email and then print it.

    Because of how email threads work, if all the previous emails to the one selected are included in the replies, those will print as well. But any emails after (newer) that the one selected, will not print.

    OK. Is there maybe a way to get them to all print on separate pages then? Then I can at least discard and sort through the pages?

    My problem really is that when you print like I do now, some emails start on the bottom half of the page and I would ideally prefer to have each header and it's content start on a new page. Possible???

    Not really. Probably the best way to work around it is to copy/paste what you want to print into a word processor and then print that.
