How can I send all emails in archive folder to someone else?

more options

I have a friend who wishes to see all the emails from a business account (info@) that we were both involved in and which I have been administering for a few years. I have therefore selected the info account, selected all messages and used archive and it has created 2 new subfolders called 2013 and 2014 under an archived folder. No problem with that at all so far.

The problem I have *NOW* is how do I now send these to my friend? I thought they would have been archived as a file which I could have attached to another email but no. I thought there would be an option to save these now as a file of some kind perhaps on my hard drive or within Thunderbird that I could have attached to an email but once again no, there doesn't seem to be that option anywhere.

SO my question is, how can I proceed from here. Yes I *COULD* select each message individually and forward them but that would be ridiculous. He is using SeaMonkey which as you probably all know uses Thunderbird for the email client so there's no problem with compatability.

Am I making sense to anyone? Please can you point me in the right direction/give me an answer and solution to this and then I can get on and sort this out and move onto something else. :)

Thanks, Nick

If you wanted to send emails as an mbox file. You could also use an Addon called ImportExporttools


Right click on folder > ImportExporttools > Export folder Then attach the mbox file to email and send. see image there are other options such as exporting as .eml to a folder. Zip the folder and attach to email.

Ok I've sussed it out on my own. In case anyone else is having the same problem, go to the archive folder you created (and can probably do it exactly the same from the inbox) select ALL messages (or just the ones you wish to forward) then either right click and select or select from the forward menu option at the top "Forward as attachments". Check the title/subject of your email and change as applicable as it seems to use the subject from the first email you select before choosing select all, and insert the email recipient you're forwarding the emails too. BINGO or Hey Presto or Abracadabra or whatever word you like for "Yessssssssssssss!" lol

And that's all the lady wrote. :) Hope it helps.
