    Dear All,

    Thanking you in advance for any replies to this thread. I am currently on Yahoo mail. As a result of various security breaches, I would like to move my email. I have moved it to Outlook.com. However, I have been with Yahoo for many years, and have many sent items.

    Would it be possible to backup my email? I have looked online, but I get nowhere.

    Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

    Yours

    Hi Mark,

    If you setup an email client on your computer, such as Thunderbird, you can connect with IMAP and then copy the old email to local folders as a backup.

    Here is a page with the download and setup directions: Can I use Thunderbird with Yahoo Mail?
