If you mean export them which would be the easiest (only?) way, have a look-see here:

Although oddly with btyahoo it can be done after a fashion...; and the method used there may work well enuff for you to copy the individual content over "en-mass".

Hello David,

I'd be more than happy to assist you. There are two ways to go about this actually.

1. The free way, a little more involved:

2. The paid way, easier, but costs:

The long way to do it all: which is one that works with btyahoo - and I think you can modify for the yahoo version.

Create a set of folders (give them names similar to all the actual folders you have - but add say a number for each - e.g. inbox-1, Save-1 etc. Copy all files/emails in your inbox to to your new inbox-1 folder. If they won't copy then "move" them. Do the same with all the folders you have in which there are emails you wish to save and transfer.

The goal at this stage is to empty all the actual yahoo created folders - their content being saved in your suitably named duplicate folders...

Then (if you haven't already) set up your outlook to work with a yahoo account; check it does by sending an email from yahoo to yourself (yahoo account). If you have outlook setup correctly to access yahoo account then outlook will pull it down, and also it will leave it one the server - "IF" you set the options in outlook to do that. That option is found in the "advanced button" for the username details in outlook you set up to access your yahoo account. There is a "leave copies on server option". The default for outlook is NOT to leave them on the server...

Having transferred "all emails" to a new/save folders you created as above, create a "test" new/save folder. Then send yourself a dummy email or two to yourself (so that it arrives in the yahoo inbox - and they are there when you access yahoo on-line). Move those test emails to your "test new/save" folder. The test emails will also be there in outlook of course (if you have set it up correctly); delete the outlook downloads of the test emails. Now in yahoo on-line access transfer the test emails back to the inbox... All being equal they will of course be downloaded again by outlook...

If the test routine works as above... do the same sequence for each of your new/save folders in turn... i.e. move the contents of one folder back to the inbox. If things go as per with the btyahoo "fudge" they will then appear as "new" emails and thus your outlook will also see and download them. Once you have all that first folder in your outlook inbox... move them to the folder (in outlook) where you want them. Then go back to yahoo on-line access and transfer/move those files/emails back to your new/duplicate folder where yo moved/saved them to as above. Then when the inbox is empty (on-line yahoo) move the contents of another folder to the inbox; and repeat the download routine as above.

I tried to get julia's first link to work; it doesn't connect...?

Hopefully you can follow the above...?
