Today I was doing competitive analysis reading through a competitors auto responder sequence that I signed up for. I already had all of his emails in a Filter but it was taking forever to click on each, and I really wanted to just print all the emails, so I could make notes etc. I wasn’t about to click print 45 times NO THANKS. I found a pretty neat work around, I hope that this can be useful!
- Create a label and insert all the emails that you want to export
- Install Thunderbird, and setup it up to retrieve mail via IMAP.
- Download Import Export Tools, and install into Thunderbird. (Tools => Add Ons =>Install)
- Restart Thunderbird.
- Now click on the folder you want to export, then navigate to Tools => Import Export Tools => Export all messages in the folder => Plain text format (0ne file). This will create a text file with the headers you want such as From, To, Date, Subject, and of course the body of the message.
I did this for 4 of my top competitors, think I came up with a few good ideas by going through the auto responder campaigns??
