Yahoo mail (unless I am mistaken) is only a webmail system which means you look at them, but they are not really on your computer (like using a mail program) so you cannot just copy a file that is not on your system to begin with. You CAN Hi-Lite all of the text, copy that and past it into a document (like word, wordpad, etc) and save that as a file onto your computer wherever you like.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I already tried that with Word, but when I did that the Attachments did not work (i.e:You Tube). Any other thoughts on the subject, I am also attempting to restore the E-mails when I'm done copying them...

You may find your answer in the above link...good luck

PS: Don't forget that yahoo has an unlimited mailbox so you can save whatever, if they are important, make a new folder in yahoo mail and move the important e-mails to that folder, it's pretty easy.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
