How can I export multiple mac email messages into either Keynote, Pwrpt, Pages? I need to chronologically present 248, flagged, emails from my mac (icloud) account and give them to my Attorney.   Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.5), 15" Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz

    There is one of the reasons why I didn't want to be a lawyer...


    First, since your attorney probably has a computer himself, I'd give him the mails in "electronic" format = as files... nothing unusual these days, and he's getting paid for making evidence work as such, right?


    You can even email the mails to him:


    - Assuming the mails have something in common, create a new "Smart Mailbox" to have them all in there. Alternatively, you'll need to create a regular new mailbox and copy them in there manually.

    - With that mailbox open, select them all (e.g. by selecting one, then pressing Command-A), then under "Message" in the menu bar click on "Forward as Attachment" (or right-click on the selected mails and choose the same command).


    The rest should be self-explanatory.

    Uhm, as you have them already flagged, and if they are the only flagged mails, then you have them already in the "Flagged" smart mailbox which exists by default...

    Just an additional thought in case you do decide to email them:


    If they contain any sensitive information, I would not send them unencrypted. I had to forward quite a few some time ago; I copy/pasted them into Pages chronologically, condensed them where I could, exported it as a .pdf and then encrypted the file. Sent two emails: the first contained the password necessary to open the file, and the second simply had the pdf attached.
