OT - Moving Yahoo Emails to OE6

Lk, home repairers.... Yes, I know this ain't a Yahoo group. But, and this is a big butt, you guys know a whole lot more than those who post cryptic stuff at the computer groups. Any help steering me in the right direction would be appreciated!
Newgene (formerly Old Snuffy)
Anyone know a reliable way to do move about a few thousand emails from Yahoo to my desktop? I searched a lot the last few days and these are what I thought were the best so far, but none of the worked.
I am glad to pay up to $25 for a program that does the job. Have not found anything with good reviews that works so far.
==================** Method #1 (Not working for me. Procedure is evidently missing some info.)
From http://www.tomsguide.com/forum/all.html?refine=bulk+export+yahoo+email
You can access your Yahoo! Mail from another email client or your mobile device using IMAP. Use these settings when configuring IMAP:
Incoming Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com Outgoing Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com Incoming Port: 993 with SSL Outgoing Port: 465 with SSL or port 587 with SSL/TLS -It is necessary to enable SSL or TLS for Outgoing SMTP port. Username: full email address (for example, snipped-for-privacy@yahoo.com) Password: the password you use to sign in to your Yahoo! Account
Since you cannot export directly from yahoo to providers like gmail you can enter this information into Microsoft Outlook to retrieve your e-mails to avoid agreeing to the new upgrade and still be able to retrieve your mail.
==================** Method #2 (Didn't work either)
https://www.labnol.org/internet/email/move-mails-across-email-accounts/84 19/
I have many emails with significant documents in my Yahoo account, so I want to export Yahoo Mail to Outlook PST file instantly.
Is there any easy solution? Please help me...

as POP3, after that you can create a PST file and save all the info that your need in the PST created.
thank you everyone for helping me.....
1. Fill Your Account Details:
. Account type - POP3 . Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com . Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
On the Advanced tab:
. Incoming Server POP3: 995 . Outgoing Server (SMTP): 465
==================** Method #3 (Installed trial version. To use, it requires user name and password. When downloading, there was no where to enter password. And they did not send any emails with password....)

For large number of Yahoo account emails, you need to create backup using third party software like Yahoo Backup tool which is capable to create backup of Yahoo emails. The backup will be created as an email file like PST, EML, MBOX or MSG which can be opened and accessed just like an Yahoo email using the respective email client. External solution available like these can be really an effective solution to save Yahoo emails to external hard drive.
How To Backup Emails from Yahoo Mail Account to Hard Drive
Step 1. Download, Install & Launch Yahoo Backup software and fill credential of user account. Step 2. Choose any one e-mail format: EML, PST, MSG or MBOX. Step 3. Then click on "Browser" button to choose the preferred location where you to save email data & click on "Start" button to initiate the email download process. Step 4. Once all email data are downloaded in local system, software will show a confirmation message "Download completed successfully". Then Click on "OK" button.

Why would you assume that?

This is the best, cheapest, most foolproof way. You vaguely say that "it's not working"... you should try to resolve that. Tell us what IS happening, not what is not happening. Error messages are crucial.
An important thing you neglect to mention is, when you say you want to "move emails to your desktop", what program precisely do want to move them into? I would assume some desktop email agent like Mozilla Thunderbird or MS Outlook, but you have to be specific.

Clarification....
I am looking for a software program I can purchase to move all emails from Yahoo inbox to my personal computer in any standard file format that is accessible by MS Outlook or Outlook Express.
If there is nothing out there to do this, then a distant 2nd choice would CVS.
Thanks.

Correction.... Trying to make it simpler....
First choice is a software program I can purchase to move all emails from Yahoo inbox to my personal computer in any standard file format that will be accessible by MS Outlook or Outlook Express.
If there is nothing out there to do this, then a distant 2nd choice would CSV.
3rd choice is any format with accessible by any other email program.
Thanks.

Oh, I see "OE6" mentioned in the subject line but not your original post itself.
I would set up Outlook and/or Outlook Express with an IMAP account for Yahoo. You will then have access to all your mail on the Yahoo server. If you want to transfer the messages off the Yahoo server, just move them to local folders. No extra programs are needed.

And I already told you that the IMAP method DOES work and invited you to figure out what's going wrong. I'd give you more advice, but you seem to not want to provide details even when asked.

- Operating system/version of Windows
- Version of Outlook
- Version of Outlook Express
- SSN, DOB, drivers license number, mother's maiden name, bank routing numbers*
- What exactly does "not working for me" mean? What happens when you try to set up the IMAP account and try to retrieve email from Yahoo? Be precise and detailed. Tell us any error messages you see. Exact wording, don't paraphrase.
You're more likely to have luck with recent versions of Outlook, but I tried it with Outlook Express 6.00.2900.5521 (the last available version I think, from 2004) and with Outlook 2003 running on Windows XP, and they both worked.
* just seeing if you were paying attention.

I have emails archived from a Mac in .MBOX format.
I want to be able to search through and view these on a windows PC. No need to have a real email connection, I just want to search and view archived messages.
Suggestions for a good .MBOX viewer.
thanks Mark

The problem is that MBOX format isn't really standardized, so the files vary enough that ones created by one program won't necessarily be read by another. I've imported MBOX files into various email programs and found that the individual messages aren't split properly and I end up with, like parts of one message mooshed in with another.
I have a utility that I found somewhere a long time ago called "MsgView". There's no indication of who wrote it and it seems to have been abandoned years ago. But I use it to peek inside MBOX files (mostly for this Usenet reader, Xnews) and it has worked in most cases. It has a simple search function. It's still floating around the Internet - here's one source:
http://www.elbiah.de/tools/old/
It may be overkill, but I've had good luck importing MBOX files into Mozilla Thunderbird.

Thanks Diesel. Yes I tried that and it never connects, eventually giving this error:
There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'Yahoo', Server: 'pop.mail.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR [SYS/TEMP] Server error - Please try again later.', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92 Tried all Brother Nil's ideas also except IMAP -- the only choice OE6 gives me is POP.

Download and install Thunderbird by Mozilla. Outlook Express is less than optimal as a mail client.
Here is a link: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/
After you install it, you can try setting up your Yahoo account in the new email client following the instruction which have been provided to you.

Also, you need to check your password by logging into your Yahoo account via a web browser. From the error message you posted, the problem could simply be that you have entered the wrong password into Outlook Express.

That's what I'm thinking the problem is. The OP should re-enter his UID and Password to make sure they are correct.
He may have trouble finding a version of Thunderbird that runs on Windows 2000. I saw some reports that ver. 12 was the last version to support that OS. I saw another report that claimed versions up through 28 worked.

No, I ain't pulling nothing. It's an old timey computer/OS but still works just fine on or off line for day to day work. I have others with Win7 and 8, and never been able to get them to work as easily as 2000. Never had any trouble with any sites yet. Butt I'm only into email and looking up stuff - not into watching videos, playing games, giving out personal info, socialist media, etc...
