My sister asked me if she can forward 40 emails in one go. She uses Yahoo!7. I had a look and it seems to me that there is no option like that...

Any idea how to deal with such a request?

I thought I could use pop3 or imap and some external email client that would do the 'hard' job for me. But I couldn't find any pop3/imap settings for Yahoo mail ... – Radek Oct 11 '10 at 21:58

It seems that it's not possible via Yahoo!'s web interface. When I select multiple messages in my inbox and click Forward, Yahoo! gives the following error:

However, there is YPOPs! which is a free open source software that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail. In this way, you can forward multiple emails at once by making use of an email software.

I thought so but what about some kind of workaround? :-) – Radek Oct 11 '10 at 21:56
Perhaps YPops! can help you. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Oct 12 '10 at 6:43
do you want to make an answer from YPops! so I can accept it? – Radek Oct 12 '10 at 22:21
@Radek: OK, I updated my answer. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Oct 13 '10 at 9:08
