I have about 1000 gmails (or .eml files) and would convert them into (single) pdf files. Do you know the best way for free?

  1. Install PDFCreator
  2. Set PDFCreator to auto save files to the desired location, note that I changed the Filename to so that it keeps the name of the email, though you can set it to whatever you like. enter image description here
  3. Open Thunderbird, select a few emails to test emails, right click them, choose "print...", Print to PDFCreator
  4. Check that the PDFs came out alright, then print the rest, it will take a few minutes.
