the only possible way that i can think of is to cut and paste the message in a text editor and directly save it to your local drive.

another way is to save the whole page. To do this.

1. View a message
2. If you want to save all the details including headers, then click the link at the upper right corner "Full Headers", or if you don't want then go back to "Brief Headers".
3. Click "Printable View". And another window will open with your message.
4. Click File - Save As, choose a filename then save it to your local drives.

Hope this answer your question.

Another way would be to use Outlook/Outlook Express or another email-reading program to access your Yahoo mail, then use that program to save your email. Unfortunately, Yahoo only offers POP access if you pay for it (Go to Mail ---> Options), but it may be worth it depending on how many of your messages you want to save.

There is no way this can do done with Yahoo. However, I did some searching and managed to find a "Yahoo! Mail Archiver" - http://rodan.ics.uci.edu:8019/getYahoo.html - this saves all your Yahoo email into one big web page that you can save as a file. There is also a program called YahooPops - http://yahoopops.sourceforge.net/index.php - that allows programs like Outlook Express to access your Yahoo account. I have read a little through their forums and they seem to have trouble with Yahoo attempting to lock people out for doing stuff like this, but it's worth a try.

YahooPOPs, mentioned above, works perfectly fine for me with Eudora.
It should do the trick for you.

If you want your eMail to be saved as plain text, then Eudora (http://www.eudora.com) is what you need with YahooPOPs. Otherwise any eMail program should work wid YahooPOPs, depending on how you want your eMail stored.

Ali.
