I agree with you that this should be improved, but as a temporary
workaround you can perahps define an action of the shell kind, calling
your print spooler (e.g. lp on a cups based system) and using the %f
code for referring to each message file separately.  As far as I know
such actions don't require any additional confirmation once you invoke
them via a menu item or a keyboard shortcut.
