You can activate POP3 in Yahoo email. Then you can download all your messages together with the attachments to your computer with any standard email software. If you want to leave the messages in Yahoo rather than 'moving' them to your computer, do not forget to check the software documentation on 'how to leave messages in the server'
Let me know if need any further help

    You need Yahoo! Mail Plus I believe (I subscribed long ago, not sure if POP3 is available on standard accounts)
    The POP3 incoming server is plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (use SSL on port 995)
    The SMTP outgoing server is plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (use SSL on port: 465, use authentication)

How to backup all your Facebook contacts


This method allows you to backup the Name, contact details and Email of all your Facebook friends in a CSV file so that you do not lose them in case of account deletion or otherwise.
Go to address.yahoo.com and click the Facebook icon. A login dialog should pop-up, just sign-in with your Facebook credentials and within seconds, you entire Facebook address book will be available inside your Yahoo Mail Account. Once the import is done, go to http://address.yahoo.com/?_src=&VPC=tools_export to download a CSV file with the email addresses of all your Facebook contacts to your desktop.

You can then import the CSV file into Gmail Contacts, LinkedIn, your phone address book or any of the social sites where you want to connect with your existing Facebook circle.

NOTE: If Yahoo! is unable to import your Facebook Address book, open your Facebook page and choose “Application Settings” under Account. Next remove the “Yahoo! Contact Importer” application from your Facebook profile and try the steps mentioned in the video again. Also, if Yahoo is added as one of your linked accounts in Facebook, this method would not work.

There are quite a few other methods that do almost the same work. But none of them will get you a list of all email addresses. The reason is that Facebook doesn't let applications have access to your email address (Unless explicitly authorized by the user). However, this method would allow you to backup it all, Name, phone nos., emails, etc. into an easily manageable CSV file which you later use to invite friends in other websites.

Forgot my yahoo.mail confirmation code to access my facebook account


When you sign up for a free Yahoo! account, you gain access to the extensive features of the Yahoo! community and receive a free email account.

As with any account, it is a wise idea to change your Yahoo! password a few times a year in order to ensure its security.

Knowing where to go in Yahoo! to change your password will allow you to do it quickly.

Sign into your Yahoo! email account.

Click on your Yahoo! name at the top of the webpage to access drop-down options.
Select the "Profile" option.

Your account page will open.
Place your cursor over "Account Info" in the toolbar.
Options will again drop down.

Click "Change Password."

Type in your current Yahoo! email password in the first text box.
Enter your new Yahoo! password in the lower two text boxes.

Click "Save."

Your Yahoo! password is now changed.
Fix Facebook If You Get Locked Out

It is possible to get hacked or click on a virus that locks you out of your Facebook account.
The social network uses preventive security measures to stop malicious software or hackers from harming the site.

Sometimes these countermeasures are too sensitive and cause everyday users to get locked out. If you were recently locked out, due to a technical glitch, user error or compromised account, then you can use Facebook's automated compromised reporting tool.

In most cases, you'll regain access to your account within a few minutes.
Type "facebook.com/hacked" in the address bar of a Web browser.

Press "Enter" on your keyboard.
Click the "My Account is Compromised" button to continue.

Fill in the form on the next page by choosing one of three identification methods: email address or phone number, Facebook username, or your name along with a friend's name.

Click the "Continue" button to continue onto the next page.
Enter your Facebook account's password, and click "Continue."

On the next page, the website notifies you that your account is locked out, which it may or may not have already been.

Type a "New Password" and "Confirm Password."
When done typing, click the "Change Password" button.

Click the check box for each email address associated with your account, confirming you have changed the password for your email address.

This is a security precaution. Click "Continue" to move to the next step.
Review if there were changes to Account Settings, and then click "Continue."

Click the "Log In" button.
Your Facebook account is unlocked, and you may proceed to use it as normal.

I want to delete a number of my yahoo adresses bpritcher@yahoo.com


What do you mean by "delete"?
I believe there is an option on Yahoo.com to close an account.
You will have to log-in to the account and find the option.
Also if you just don't use the email for a long period Yahoo will automatically close the account for you.

If you are talking about saved names and passwords, you can clear those.
I recommend you get the wonderful free CCleaner tool.
Not only does it have an option to clear out those saved passwords, it will also remove junk from your temporary folder, old log files, unused/bad webpage cookies, internet cache, etc.
No PC user should be with out this tool or similar, Run it once a month to keep your PC running fast and free up HD space.

Yahoo emails are saved on the internet by default. All you have to do is go to Yahoo.com, log into email and they will be there. If you forgot you password there is an email reminder option.

If you are talking about using Windows Restore points that will not bring back deleted files.

Hope this helps!
