Easyiest way would be to grab them from the database
select email_address from smf_members
You can run that query via phpmyadmin

If you have cpanel you might have a phpmyadmin section
From there you would select the database. Then run the query or use the export option

Here is a video i found on phpmyadmin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgAyGjcNrIQ

Don't think you can export a column, but just export the table as csv and load it into spreadsheet, then you can do whatever with the data.

Yes, I know, but that's using a query, not pma export.  Some folks are not up to running queries.  Couple ways of doing same thing.
