As part of my personal workflow, I forward certain mails to Evernote for indexing. I also have several hundred archived mails that I would also like to import into Evernote. Unfortunately, I can't seem to highlight them and forward them en masse to my Evernote email address.

How can this be done?

Bulk forwarding isn't a feature of GMail. You may want to try accessing GMail with a local client, such as Outlook, Thunderbird, or Live Mail, and trying to forward the email through them.

You can use the script described here.

Just add labels to the message in Gmail, and, in the background, the script will forward the message to a note in Evernote, to any notebook of your choice and with the assigned labels as tags.

In GMail, you can easily add labels to many messages at once, and this script will forward them to Evernote. However, there is a limit of 500 messages per day, imposed by Gmail.
