list of emails into text file

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

Is anyone aware of a way I can copy a selection of emails from my inbox and paste into a text file or new email body. <br><br>So if my inbox shows 10 mails, I'd select all 10, copy, and paste into a file the subjects, date and times of each mail. <br><br>This would be great, and I'm sure a script is possible but I've no idea where to start. <br><br>Thanks in advance!

Save messages as text files:

Entourage Many to Word By: Allen Watson
This script will take one or more selected messages (or a single message 
if open) and will write them all to a single Microsoft Word document.

http://bit.ly/bKdhmn

Many to TextEdit by: Allen Watson
Same as Entourage Many to Word. Saves to TextEdit and not Word.

This is pretty close, but it takes the entire message. Ideally I want the header, from and time sent that's shown in the message list of Inbox... it would then create a 'to do' list for me of all the active messages that I can forward on to colleagues.

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Sorry, but there is no script available that can do this AFAIK.

Using TEXT and &TEXT
I'm familiar with the TEXT function, but sometimes a number will display incorrectly when I format numbers to display with a comma if 4 digits or more. For example, TEXT(F1,"0,0") will display 10 thru 999 correctly and displays 1000 correctly as 1,000, but displays 1 thru 9 as 01, 02, etc. Also wondering how to format part of a TEXT formula to underline, and bold or color selected words.

Better to "nest" or use multi-level list?
I'm in the process of creating/defining a style(s) for a list that will be numbered in "level 1" and have indented bullets in "level 2." For such a list is it better to define a multi-level list style and linked paragraph styles? Or use one's already defined numbered list and use one of the Word's pre-defined bullet lists when needed for the second level? As part of this question, is is preferable not to have a style "nested" within another style or doesn't it matter? Thank you. -- Norm Hi Norm: I'm not sure why yo...

Is there a way to copy text from a published knowledgebase article?
Hello, This is a question I haven't been able to find an answer to. Our helpdesk quite often needs to pass on instructions from the knowledgebase to our people in the field.

Smart List export to Excel #2
Hi, We are using Dynamics 9.0 and Office 2003. When we try to do a Smart List export to Excel, we keep getting an "Exception_Class_Object_Exception" that references varying object errors, such as 'Cells' or 'Value'; the object errors will change each time we try an export. As a workaround, I've found that closing Excel before doing the export allows the export to complete successfully. However, that solution isn't acceptable, as our Dynamics users would like to be able to work in Excel, doing other tasks, while the export is processing. Does anyone...
