How Do I Copy Yahoo! Mail To My Computer?

How Do I Create A Folder from Yahoo! Mail to my computer so that I don’t lose the contents?

Theresa, the simplest thing to do would be to use an e-mail client like Outlook, Microsoft Mail or Thunderbird to download your e-mail messages to your computer.  Then you can delete the ones you don’t want and hang on to the important ones. You can configure any of these programs to download e-mail from any e-mail provider you like.

Web-based e-mail accounts are designed to function in the cloud, so there’s really no simple way to take your e-mails and just move them to a local folder.

    The easiest way I’ve found is to copy and paste to Word (probably any word possessor would work) then you can save it on your computer and/or print it or view it later.
