saving email files

By fglaustin ·
this may be a easy process, but i cannot figure out how to save emails that i have in my yahoo mailbox. i need to save them on a 3.5 floppy. when i right-click on the message i am able to use "save target as" but only gave me a link that started my browser and opened my yahoo email box. the copy feature is not available. i can set up another email acount with my isp and send to that as an attachment, and can i then open that and put the attachment to a floppy?? i am using win 98 and ie 6.0 with a cyrix 700 MZ.

For Yahoo mail, clcik on the print preview button.

Then click on file, save as on the menu bar.

The mail will be saved as a web page (html)

Or, you can copy the text into notepad, or forward the mail to a regular (pop3) e-mail address.

Hi!!

you have two options:

1. You can forward the mail from the yahoo a/c to the ISP mail account. Retreive the ISP mail through any email client such as outlook express, outlook etc and open the mail and save it

OR

2. Log in to the yahoo account. Open the mail that you want to save. Above the mail there is a link called "Printable View". Click on that link and a new window will open the mail in a Printable view.

Click File> Save As>

Enter a filename and save it to a Floppy or to our Hard disk. It will saved as .htm file..you can open it in the browser.

If you are saving it after retreiving it through an email clinet, if you want to preview the mail at a later time, you need to have the same client installed to view the mail.

Regards
