You have to use the messages stored in the '~/Library/Mail' folder. Select the right folder, and use the 'Messages' folder right inside.

Is the complete path required?

I have 20 email inboxes that I monitor. I have not been able to get the dredge to work at all. I have tried /mailboxname/Messages, the mailbox name alone and several other combinations but I just can't get it to work.

Can you let me know how to get the dredge to work in my environment?

Thanks!

'/mailboxname/Messages' is correct and works fine here. Check if the 'Messages' folder is not empty (some are) and that you are using very last version.

Can't extract from APPLE MAIL

In the Library folder I don't see more than /Mail/AccountTypes/com.apple.builtin.mailaccounts/MailAccount.plist

How can I extract files from Apple Mail with eMail Extractor

(I used Entourage before and there the extraction was easy)

found it

maybe this will help someone:

Archive the Mailbox (right click + "Archive Mailbox...") and drag/drop the file mbox into Extractor
