Current it is only possible to imprt and export sing .eml-files.

export:
it should be possible to select multiple emails. If multiple-emails are
selected, "Files/Save As" only should request a folder. (I think I remember that
TheBat! email-client does so.) I suggest to implement an option to change
between numbers or subjects as names.

import:
The selected .eml-files in the file request window should be imported directly
into the selected folder. (I think I remember that TheBat! email-client does so.)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
typing error: sing -> single
I think this feature is extremely important. Currently importig and exporting
one by one is extremely time-consuming.
Importing eml-files from and exporting them to directory would be nice features.

In OE this is possible with DnD, so it should be possible at least per import
and save dialogues.
Please file a seperate bug for each issue!

Multiple eml export is covered by bug 258570 (marking dup on that). The other
issues are covered in existing bugs - I suggest you search for those and add
yourself to the CC list.
