Save attachments from multiple Mail messages Apps
In Mail, you can save attachments from several messages all at once by selecting all the messages and then selecting File: Save Attachments. I use this a lot if I receive batches of images in several email messages. I find it much faster since mail doesn't have to try to display images which can be quite slow if they are big.

[kirkmc adds: This goes in the 'Well, yeah, isn't that obvious' section, but it's probably not that obvious to everyone. A previous hint discusses removing attachments, and a comment mentions that this works for multiple messages. So it makes sense that this would work for saving attachments as well. You could set a keyboard shortcut, using the Keyboard & Mouse preference pane, if you want to save attachments often without using the menu.]

Save attachments from multiple Mail messages

To boost the usefulness of theis further I use a Smart Folder that grabs all messages with attachments with "jpg" in the name from the group "family" of family members in my address book. Works well especially since I am away from home many days a week.
