@LooneyPandora: Could you set a server to do a cron job to do it or fork it, maybe?

Got your email.... Thanks for the rapid response.  If you need any help on testing it, just let me know.
Also, I changed the name 'philline' to reflect my name: Neil Phillips

Just spotted this one Wink

Yeah, I'm working on a converter, Corey is right, it just needs to be cleaned up, and made into a single script before distributing.

It is possible to download different parts from different machines - at the moment, you can download messages 1-1000 at work, and 1001-2000 at home, for example.

I'm speaking to philline via PM's - and this may expedite the finishing of this converter Smiley

Oh, it will never be able to run from a website - it is just too long running - it will need to be downloaded and run on a local machine.

Maybe the converter should be modified so that different parts of the conversion can be run by different internet connections?

Andy, aka LoonyPandora.  He said he successfully converted 100,000 messages that way but he has to clean up the code and make it presentable.  He also said it took 3 weeks for that many because Yahoo bans your IP if you make page requests more than every few seconds.

That will be great if he gets the Yahoo Groups > Yabb2.  That is what I need.  I have over 700 messages on a Group at Yahoo and I would like to get all of the messages and users on my Yabb2 because it offers more flexibility and features. Hopefully he will read my post and let know when he has one ready. I'm new to the group here so I'm not familiar with this 'Andy'.  Anyway, thanks for the input.

Heh, not really.  That would be a tricky one to implement... a very tricky one...
