Not sure that will work for me ... My e-mail accounts are POP. And, I've already downloaded all of my e-mail, which is what I do everyday, several times each day.
Also, I don't use Thunderbird. I only use Mac Mail. I have so much e-mail, that I really don't want to copy each message individually, then paste than one message into one word document, then repeat that procedure for many thousands of messages.
I have my e-mail filtered out into many different folder. For example, family history research that pertains to my PACKARD line is all in one folder. I would be very convenient to simply take all those e-mail messages in that one folder, and have them copied into a word or text file.
When I used Eudora e-mail on my old Power Mac 7300, I was able to do something like that, but I can't remember just how I did that .... It was pretty simple though.
I just need to find the right software that will work with Mac Mail ....
That is my plan ... But, I need to compile e-mails into categories, before printing. For example:
All the e-mails regarding my PACKARD family history, need to be in one or several documents, depending on how many e-mails, and how long they are. If the total is only 10 pages or so, then I can put them all into just one document, and print, then file into the PACKARD family history folder.
Now, with my ANDREWS e-mail .... I will need more than one document -- probably a dozen or more. I don't want to print every single e-mail, just one message on one sheet of paper. That's a waste of space in my family history folders and binders.
Also, makes it much easier when reading and researching to have all the messages together.
I also need to get a printer .... But I'm not even ready to print yet ....
