Lotus Notes 8.5 exporting mails that have the body included.

Dear Experts,

I was wondering if there is a way to export a mail to excell with the body included. For example, if we do this now we select mails from the inbox, go to 'export', select 'Tabular Text'
a file with no extention is created. Now as soon as we rename this file to .csv and open it in excell it looks perfect. Except, it has no body included. So we have 'Who', 'Time', 'Subject' etc but not what's in the mail. My question now is, is there a way to also include the body (content of the mail) into this exported file or not. And if not, is there a way to actually get this done?

Thanks in advance.

FYI:  Lotus Notes 8.5 / Excell from office 2002

Best regards.

It's not for the attachments, it's for the content of the mail. Thing is, we have 100+ mails that are mostly simular except the content is different each time. What we want is actually a good overview of these mails and their content in a sheet (Pref. excell but in another format will do as well)

So again, it's not for the attachments but for the body (text inside the mail).
If other way's are even better would love to hear about them.

Thanks in advance.
