Export Messages is an AppleScript that will save multiple emails to text files in a folder on your desktop.

Does not support HTML emails yet, just plain text emails, but it is perfect for mailing list subscription emails or digests that are cluttering up your Mail mailboxes!

This script is meant to be run from the script menu in Mail. Just drop it in the Mail Scripts folder in your Scripts folder (in your Library folder). If you don't see a folder named Mail Scripts, just create one (or choose Open Scripts Folder from the script menu in Mail and Mail will create it).
