[horde] Possibility to mass download emails on local filesystem or mass print?

Currently horde does not offer the possibility to either mass print  
several emails, or download them for archival on filesystem.  In other  
words, other than doing one email at a time, its impossible to archive  
or manipulate them out of the email server.  This would be beneficial  
for archival of important emails, or when they need to be printed. 

The need arose today when someone asked me to make a single PDF of 40  
odd emails on my Gmail account.  Google doesnt offer the possibility  
to mass print them or export them locally, and neither does horde.  I  
specially had to install thunderbird (client is running a mint  
machine, so no Outlook), add my gmail account, then TBird offered the  
possibility to export (save as...) them (as .eml files) on the local  
filesystem, or mass print them (create a huge PDF or print them  
directly on a printer

So why Horde couldn't??  I have a hard time nobody thought of adding  
this feature to horde? Productivity wise, its much needed IMO..   
Perhaps there's a better way to extract emails from the jail that is  
the email server?  If I had the slightest idea about coding, I'd try  
something but I know nothing about programming so the only way I can  
contribute is by bringing end user feedback and feature suggestions to  
improve horde and its friends ;)
