    On Dec 14 -the email says- they will erase all our stored info but continue the email groups.
    So it sounds like all past messages and files will poof.
    The files are pretty easy to access and save.

    How about all those messages?
    Is there an easy way to save 10 years of email messages, from the site, in chronological order or at least by thread and ideally in an easily searchable format?

    This might also work but I haven't tried it:
    https://github.com/csaftoiu/yahoo-groups-backup
    Non-techies needn't apply: "The project requires Python 3.5+, Mongo, and a computer with a GUI as Selenium is used for the scraping (to be able to handle private groups)."
