Collect the text of selected e-mails in Mail.app
Authored by: BlackPenguin on Dec 08, '10 08:49:31AM

While I appreciate the poster's efforts to create an AppleScript for this purpose, I am curious whether he was aware that Mail is capable of saving many emails to a text file at once without the use of a script. Select the messages you want to save, go to File > Save As..., and choose either a text or RTF file format.

This will save basic headers along with the emails, which I find useful for following an email thread. They could be easily removed with a script or command-line tool, however.
