Saving list of emails to a file or spreadsheet

Saving list of emails to a file or spreadsheet

Saving list of emails to a file or spreadsheet

How do I create/export a list of emails as displayed in the mailbox
to a file (text or excel or whatever) or to folder in windows (from which I know I can create a list).

I don't need the contents of the emails or any attachments - just the list.

I need to run a comparison on the sender and subject lines from my mailbox against the same in the sent folder and in my archive?

I can do this once I get the lists, but how do I get the lists?

Does File -> Print -> Print List do what you need?

RE: Saving list of emails to a file or spreadsheet

Thank you Marvin for your suggestion, however I have already tried this and get no response from GW at all. It just ignores the instruction. You click on it an nothing happens.

I have downloaded GWSave and have saved a filtered folder of emails from GW to a folder in C/My Documents as .eml files.

From there I use command prompt to to list the directory as a .txt file which I then import into excel. Then it is just a question of formatting the text to columns.

This gets the job done but is very labour (and disk space!!)intensive.

I was just hoping for a quicker and easier way do do something which on fist view, one thinks ought to be quite simple.
