Does anybody know how (if possible) to print a whole conversation thread in Mail.app?

I have a work around for you that works and is a bit quicker than copying to pages.

What you do is: 1. Highlight the emails that you want to print. Either the whole thread or selecting particular emails by holding the apple key and selecting the mails.

  1. Click the 'forward' button. This compiles all the emails into on big email

  2. Print! and you are done.

It doesn't compile them into one big e-mail. :( –  entropid Jun 29 '12 at 13:41

In Mail.app on OS X 10.9, Mavericks, this is default behavior when only the conversation is selected in the inbox.

There's no way to do this, at the moment. I've looked through the whole web.

Ahahah, nearly. ;) –  entropid Jun 29 '12 at 17:22
How about saving each mail to PDF and then combine (drag & drop) them into one PDF and print? –  Zo219 Dec 31 '13 at 4:20
