In Thunderbird, how to save all images embedded (multipart/related MIME format) in email in one turn?

Select View > Show As/Message Body As > Plain text and all embedded content will become attachments. Now right-click on attachments pane, and select Save All

Unfortunately, not really. This possibly might have to do with versions, I hope, versions from nowadays will show the text version of the email, if one is available. In my case, the text version of the message has different content. :-( – Charles Roberto Canato Mar 7 at 5:22

In newer versions of Thunderbird I couldn't find the View menu from @ngen's answer. A basic workaround for Debian or Ubuntu would be:

  1. Save the mail as email.eml.
  2. Open up a terminal and navigate to the directory where you saved the mail to
  3. sudo apt install mpack
  4. munpack email.eml

Afterwards, all attached files or embedded images should be as single files in the current directory. For other linuxes, mpack should be available from the respective repository.
