    Is there a way to find the files in Incredimail, Yahoo, or Gmail that contain my email and move them to a plain text file in a text editor or to a floppy? I have several hundred emails containing info that I want to keep in a place other than the email program. I use Firefox 1.0 and there is no way to "copy", "paste", "save as" on the file menu. You can save the entire page in html, but I just need to save some of the text.
    Also, is there a way to "mass copy" the files at one time?
    TIA

    See if this will help you with Incredimail. You can drag the .EML files into Outlook Express and then save them as plain text, if you want. Freeware.
