copy an eml file from TB to a folder under windows 7

I would like a script for copy the selected eml files from the main window in Thunderbird to a folder of my election in windows explorer under windows 7.

Do you know any software to do this o perhaps is a little snack ?

Best Regards

I think is not the same.
That tool is for general purpose, not for "copy" the email from the thunderbird main window to a desired folder in the windows explorer.

you don't need anything extra. In Thunderbird you mark / select the files you want to copy. Then go to "Files" and click Save As... > Files, and navigate to the folder > Save. That's all.

I need something more powerful.
I usually use the drag and drop option to the open folder.....

Well, it certainly can be done as an add-on. Evernote used have one (maybe still do). I currently use an InfoQube addon to save emails to an InfoQube folder (but it's not customisable, sorry!)

i understand. i have an old version of goldmine : 5.5.
Really the aim is a perfect information manager with my old software and not so old software. that's the point. because of this i need a code snack i suppose.

Waiting a year more we'll have the perfect software integration via OCR to do all these things...

I hope so
