I'm looking into that too - there's a bit over 25,500 messages, I'm estimating 40Mb or so downloaded size (not including
all the HTML junk that Yahoo adds). I have a reasonably fast Internet connection, so I expect I could get them pulled
down in a few days at most. The pages are formatted such that the message content itself is easily identified, so I
could save out only that content. The thread information would be easily captured as well, perhaps saving the messages
as XML along with tags for their replies would be a sensible choice.
Once downloaded, I could ZIP the whole thing up & push it to an FTP server somewhere.
