A quickie method for the above using Gmail and Google Docs:

1. Create your fake conversation mailing messages to yourself, iterate
by the number of separate threads you need.

2. For each thread, Forward All after changing the subject line so
they don't concatenate in the original thread (command found on the
"More" drop-down list box).

3. In each new thread, use the "Create a Document" command also found
on the "More" list box's drop-down. This creates a document containing
the complete thread (including email headers) in a Google Docs
document.

4. Save the GDocs document to disc in a format your word processor can handle.

5. Edit at will, changing names and headers, etc.

Best regards,

Paul
