    I have windows xp. My service is with AT&T. I get my mail through Yahoo mail. When I get mail I put it in a folder. Can some one tell me how I can put all my folders on a flash drive? I don't see any place that says I can store my mail on a flash drive. Thanks.:confused:

    You put it in a folder where? On Yahoo's webmail site? Using a client on your computer? Which one?

    I am using window xp. I have AT&T service. I get my emails through Yahoo mail. I have created folders on Yahoo mail page.When I open my email I store it in one of the folders on Yahoo mail page. 1- I want to put these folders with the emails in them on a flash drive. Can you please tell me how I can do this? 2- After doing this from now on when I get emails can I put them into my flash drive in the folders which I already have? 3-When some body replies to my question how can I answer them on this forum? Thanks.

    If you're only using the Yahoo web interface, then nothing is stored on your computer. File -> Save As is not going to save the e-mail messages. It's going to save a web page.

    Favorites are links to web sites. They have nothing to do with e-mail messages.

    If you want a local copy of your e-mail messages, you have to download them with an e-mail client. I don't now if Yahoo free accounts still support POP or how you'd set that up. They wouldn't be downloaded in the folders they're saved in on Yahoo's servers though.

    Why do you want to download them?
