I have about 80 emails from work that have been forwarded by another party. I need to extract the original recipients email address but although I have found tools to do this

Mail Scripts

It only extracts the email address of the person who has forwarded this to me and my email address.

Does anyone know of a program that would extract all email addresses from the original message so that I can extract the address the email was originally sent from?
QUOTE Thanks

Done it by way of Apple Scripts and Excel.

Used this to copy the body of the email to my text editor

Apple - Support - Discussions - Extracting email addresses from the ...

Then pasted the results into Excel
Then ran a simple left query for first 7 characters which gave the results

[mailto

In column A
Then sorted alphabetically and deleted everything that didnt start

[mailto

I love my Mac more and more each time something like this happens as doing this in Windows would have been a nightmare.
QUOTE Thanks
