I do have a rather large task to do: I need to convert a folder in my gmail with lots of tagged messages either as a large PDF (which Adobe Acrobat does on Outlook - Except the latter crashes while loading this mailbox) or as a individual PDF (which I plan to link on a Wiki Database)

While it doesn't fully need to be in PDF (as long as I can, say, outsource to someone else to convert each .eml file as a .pdf file), I need to have them split so I can cross-reference them on a Wiki.

What would you suggest to accomplish this task?

i would use something like a perl script for this... i have one that goes through and gets new mail but this is something different here's the one for new mail and modify it if you're feeling courageous

curl -u $1:$2 --silent "https://mail.google.com/mail/feed/atom" | \
    perl -ne 'print "\t" if //; print "$2\n" if /(.*)/;'

where $1 and $2 are username and password in bash argument format


You can use CutePDF, etc. from within Outlook or Thunderbird. Select several emails and 'print' using CutePDF. PDFCreator, is supposed to work similarly.
