That's going to be difficult for a couple of reasons.  First, it's easy enough to get all the messages in a conversation so long as each message is a reply to a previous message.  But, if any of the messages are "stand alone" (i.e. not a reply, but a separate message), then finding it is almost impossible.  Say for example that you send me a message.  I reply to it, you reply back, and I reply to your reply.  Those messages are all tied together by a property called ConversationIndex.  Now, let's change the scenario a bit.  After sending my initial reply to your message I thought of something additional I wanted to say and sent that as a new message, not as a reply.  That message is still part of the conversation, but since I didn't reply to an existing message it has a different ConversationIndex value and won't be seen as part of the conversation.  Second, people tend to add their reply to the existing message text.  That means parsing each message body to get just the text of the reply and not all the text in the message.  It's doable, but from a programming perspective it's more complex than simply grabbing the message body.  

This is possible with limits, but it wouldn't be easy.

Thanks for the response...

There are mails that someone send to me then i reply back and the mails go on transfering to each other say 20 mails in total.
What i want is a Macro that can get all the from,To (Received and sent) mails to a Html page.
With breaks
Like a header stating "Sharath received this mail on 12/12/2006"
All the content
Then a header "Sharath replyed with this content on 13/12/2006"
and so on

So that when i need to send a copy yo my manager or someone else it would be easy to read all mail list a single Html page.
Instead of a forward mail
