Export emails into spreadsheet (script)

I 'd like to export emails from my mail client(mac) inbox into an Excel spreadsheet. I need the Subject, From fields, Return-Path and the Message-ID. Does anyone know how I can do this?

Thanks,

Newbie Smilie

You wuld need to parse inbox the mail file to find message boundaries, then parse out these items from the front of the message, ignoring later ones in forwarded, replied or attached message headers. It is not so hard, being all in text.
