    If you just want to download all then you can setup a hotmail account and download all using pop3. However you cannot specify which one's you want. It will downlaod all.

    Another way is to have one of those filters out there in which you can see the header and subject before downloading.

    Set up the account in Outlook Express (when it asks you your email address it&#39;ll see it&#39;s a hotmail account and put the right settings in the boxes) then copy the emails you want to keep into one of your local folders.
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    you could just save them one by one as a .txt document if thats how you wanna do it. file> save as> save as type > and select which one you want. time consuming tho.

    yeh, you just need your pop3 address ie> pop.mail.yahoo.com and smtp ie > smtp.mail.yahoo.com, and your user name, password etc, some email accounts require that "Log on using Secure Password Authentication" is not checked if it dont send and recieve just untick the box

    In Outlook go step by step choosing for hotmail. It should have an option already.

    Once you are in Outlook. Go to Tools> Email Accounts>
    Select HTTP and follow through
