I've a free Yahoo! Mail account nearing 300 emails and I want to download the mail to my computer. I also have a backup of the emails in my another Gmail account.
Is there something in Yahoo! Mail that will help me download all my email?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.
Yahoo supports POP with a paid account (and as of December 2013, with standard accounts as well). Gmail supports POP and IMAP - set up a mail client like Thunderbird according to the instructions provided by the mail provider and that's about it.
Thunderbird should save by default. To be sure, go to Tools -> Account Settings -> Synchronization & storage, and ensure Keep messages for this account on the computer is ticked for that account
