forwarding email

Please help
I created a folder that I saved all emails relating to a group I am a member of to
I now want to forward all those emails to a friend who has taken over running of said group
Is the only way to do this - one email at a time?
I can click and highlight all the emails but a right click only gives me the option to 'forward' one message?!
this would take ages - I hope there is an easier way?!
Thank you in advance

Re: forwarding email

If you set up a standalone email client like Thunderbird or Outlook to collect your messages using IMAP, then you can probably bulk select emails and forward them en masse. I'm not sure you have this functionality when using Webmail (although I could be wrong).

Re: forwarding email

With webmail you can select multiple messages in a folder, but when you do this the "forward" option is greyed out. However, as Bob said, with Thunderbird connected to the mailbox using IMAP you can select them all, then use "Forward as Attachment" to send a single message with these emails attached as separate .eml files.
However have you checked if your friend knows how to import .eml files?
