download sent folder

I am trying to download my entire sent folder from YahooMail to my PC. Does anybody know how to do this?

I’ve already verified that it’s using SMTP with the correct port number, which (I think) are the necessary settings for my sent folder.

But still no idea how to effect the download.


Hello Eric, the SMTP protocol is used for sending messages through your mail server, however does not download any of your from the server. If you want to keep your items synchronised with the server, you have to setup your account as IMAP, unless you’re already using an IMAP account. If you’re using IMAP you should have an available IMAP tab in your account settings under Tools > Accounts > Your account.

If not, you should be able to setup your Yahoo account as IMAP by simply setting up the account using automatic setup in Tools > Accounts > New account.

Hope this helps,
