Is there a way to save e-mails to another drive or a remote storage device in order to archive old messages?

hi taxman12!

since the yahoo! server's mailbox storage is unlimited, you no longer need to delete your old emails. just simply save it there.

but if you really want to have a backup of your mailbox, you may pop/download them to your computer. you can download your emails to a client email program like Outlook, Outlook Express etc. TAKE NOTE, you need to setup the email profile to leave copies of your emails on the yahoo! server first before starting to pop your emails to your computer. this way, you will have copies of your emails on both Yahoo! and your computer.

and if you want a backup copy of emails stored on Outlook (backup of a backup), you could get more info. from this link below: (you can save this on a remote device/CD/other drives etc.)
Back up Outlook e-mail messages

hope this helps! :smileyhappy:

I have recently switched computers and am now using Entourage in addition to the Web-based yahoo e-mail through sbcglobal.net. I have successfully downloaded e-mails in my inbox to Entourage but now want to download/export my saved folders from the yahoo server to my desktop as well. How do I do that and then export those into Entourage as well? Thanks.

hi lillie-beth!

unfortunately, only the contents of the Yahoo! INBOX can automatically be popped/downloaded to client email programs like Entourage. you cannot download/export the contents of saved/personalized folders in the Yahoo! mailbox to Entourage.

what you need to do is manually move all emails from those personalized folders and move them to the Yahoo! INBOX so that Entourage can download them. once downloaded, you can just manage your emails and create new folders on Entourage.

it's tedious, but that's the only way. LOL
