Save as text all messages in a folder?

User Help for Mozilla Thunderbird

Post Posted May 10th, 2010, 2:38 pm

I really appreciate this information; Outlook lets you save many messages at once to one text file easily... I'd like to be able to do that (and was able to follow your instructions and do this w/ all the HTML -- but would like to view it w/out the HTML in a Text file as Karen LB requested above) ... but Thunderbird 3.0.4 is not letting me install that extension... is there anything I can do? Thank you to anyone who can help!!

Pegasus Mail still does.

Hi All, I was able to install the extension today to Thunderbird but am trying to figure out if there is any way to save all messages as one text file including attachments... or is that impossible? Also, what is the fastest way to save all messages to one text file? Thanks very much...
