Merge without saving each time

I'm trying to extract email addresses from emails stored in Folders inside my Mail app. I'm using Tiger.
I selected "merge results when several files selected" because I want all the addresses to be in 1 single file.
When I try to save the merged file to start the extraction, Email extractor asks me to save each email file.
Is there a way that I can just click "save" once and all the emails will be extracted and merged in 1 single file instead of having to do it hundreds of times?

Really strange. If you have set in the preferences to gather all results to a single file you should be asked once. Have you tried to delete the preference file?

multiple saves

I quit email extractor, deleted the preferences, click on merge in the new preferences and it still asks to save every time...

What I do is:
1) I launch email extractor
2) A email extractor window opens
3) I drag a folder with files and drop it on the window
4) A finder save window opens
5) I click save and a few seconds later it asked me to save again. IT does this until I have to force email extractor to quit

All I can say to this is it works for me and is the reason I just registered v.3.

Now I just have to figure out how to get this to jive with my spreadsheet to give up the names associated with the email addresses.
