A Forum reader recently asked:
“Is there a batch utility that allows a user to block a range of emails and save them to a local drive, without having to sit there and specify each file name individually? For example, I just want to save the file with the subject as the name and automatically add a number at the end to make the name unique. We have an employee who is leaving and wants to save a copy of each of his email messages for security reasons. There’s a massive amount of messages involved, and it’s just not practical to sit there and name each file as it’s saved.”
And here’s the response from Ty Theierl …
In addition to the Mailsaver program (http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfmod/project/?mailsaver), you can now use GroupWise 7.0.2 to do that. To save emails en masse in MIME format,
1. Select the messages you want to save.
2. Right-click them and choose Save As.
3. Choose a destination and click Save.
The files will be saved with the .eml extension.
