Batch convert AOL saved mail to text files
Hi all!

Does anyone know how to convert multiple AOL saved mail to text files? I need to convert several hundred saved messages and there are far too many to do one at a time.

Thanks!

Perhaps you would like to download your AOL email using a standard email client. From there you are likely to have more export options. Refernce my AOL IMAP instructions in this thread:

Some progress...
Thanks, Codecfears, for your help. I've installed Mozilla Thunderbird and gotten it working so that it reads newly received AOL email. I haven't figured out, however, how to get it to read email stored on my PC. Can you be of further help? Thanks again!
