How can you download gmail archives?
I did a search on g for "download all gmail" some interesting things you can try. Some require you to have a server online and use fetchmail also there are a couple programs that are being sold. I think the server route might be the better method
You can use Outlook or Thunderbird to keep your messages offline, all you to do is to activate POP (or Imap if you prefer) and then configure your e-mail client to download all your messages.
I guess the link below might be o f some help to u
Supported POP client list - Help Center
Definitely Outlook or Thunderbird as previously said.
I prefer Outlook,
Thats Much Easier But i dont know how to config Outlook for Yahoo,
i have a free yahoo account
If u have a free account with yahoo then u cant use outlook with yahoo.
POP for yahoo is available only for premium users.
