I need forward 200 email messages. I have a Gmail account and Thunderbird installed. I can't forward each message manually; I want forward them at once. How can I do that?

If the emails have any common feature that you can make a filter out of them, like they are all from one (or few) senders, then create a filter in Gmail and and fill in the address you want to send them to in the "Forward it to:" textbox and select "Also apply filter to X matching conversations."

It will send out the filtered messages right after.

I just attempted this without success. No messages were sent even though I followed your description exactly. –  David Feb 27 '13 at 2:38
Unfortunately it does say that old mail won't be forwarded. Just works for new emails received. –  Niki Oct 1 '13 at 18:01
