Get e-mail addresses from Gmail messages received

In Gmail, you can tag one or more emails with a Label:

enter image description here

I know I can select the label to see the emails in question, but what I want is to get everyone's email address associated with these labels for export. In the above image, I'd want the email addresses of Lifestreams Blog, Ozh, and WordPress since they're tagged 'planetozh'.

EDIT:

Let's assume I can download all the emails into Mozilla Thunderbird and view the emails in an ordered list with the label set correctly (using IMAP). How could I export the list of email addresses (duplicates are not a problem) this way?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
BTW, where did you get this ancient gmail interface? –  user Mar 23 '12 at 3:57
    
Dunno. Just googled for "gmail labels" or something. Didn't want to take a picture of my own email client and go through blacking out and possible confusion. –  Kyle Boddy Mar 23 '12 at 4:08
    
Very similar to webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/17492/… which was closed as a duplicate of webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/9813/… –  Al E. Mar 23 '12 at 15:55
    
Those help, sort of - they don't talk about labels, though. I have hundreds of thousands of emails in my account, which isn't going to be all that useful. While I have some experience with shell scripting and database management, I was hoping the answer wouldn't be that... coarse. –  Kyle Mar 23 '12 at 18:19
    
I strongly disagree with this being closed as an exact duplicate. I wanted to offer a bounty on this, because those posts do NOT answer my question. –  Kyle Mar 26 '12 at 9:24

label:planetozh in the search bar should return any emails with that tag. Using an IMAP account, you can pull in those labels and make a contact list. Export the contact list to excel or csv.

Would downvote if I could, alas I'm only 106 rep on SuperUser. I need email addresses, not emails. –  Kyle Boddy Mar 22 '12 at 18:45
    
Kobaltz edited his answer. Where would I go in Thunderbird to create said contact list? I have it imported via IMAP and have the messages open in the label. –  Kyle Boddy Mar 22 '12 at 21:51
    
I don't know if Thunderbird will work. Does it have an address book or contacts module? Last time I looked at it was a dealbreaker since I did not want to use the Lightning Calendar thingy. –  kobaltz Mar 22 '12 at 21:58
    
It has both. But I have Outlook open with them imported and the label up. I select them all, right-click, and nothing promising comes up. Ideas? –  Kyle Boddy Mar 22 '12 at 22:43
