Thanks! I just downloaded the file and will take a look at it. If  
it's really self-contained a Dropscript would work nicely. I've no  
reason to leave Mail but it's nice to know that there is a way to  
save back to .mbox format just in case.

I read that the .emlx format is definitely not new, about 20+ years  
old, so this isn't totally random.

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
