Re: [NTO] Search Yahoo Archive
- Thanks for your reply, Julie.
How does one open each message in a new browser window? Is it enough to
hold down the Shift key while clicking on the message's Subject line?

the ads before the price goes up to $29.95. The best part about
NetCaptor is its got tabs just like NoteTab. So, you hold down
the shift key and click on a link and it opens in another tab
(either next to the tab you are in or at the end of them
depending on your settings). So, you can go down a list of
messages clicking on the ones you want in a new tab then go to
each tab by clicking on it like in NoteTab. It does get kind of
sluggish if you do more than 6 or so links at the same time.

My thanks to you all for help with viewing search results of Yahoo group
archives. Holding down the shift key to see each message in a separate
instance of the browser is a quite satisfactory solution.
Related question: How can I search the archive for a particular word like
"sun" that will not return messages just because those three letters appear
somewhere within other words like "Sunday"?
I tried using quotes but that didn't help.
Follow-up question: Is there a FAQ or other area on Yahoo where search
options or preferences or strategies are discussed. If so, where is it?

have is how mail is read: on the web, eMail, or digest. The only
right you have is to sign on or off. <g> Well, you also have the
right to remain silent, less you might incriminate yourself

or at least get them in a digest format, then eventually you will
have plenty of messages to search. You could use MailBag
Assistant also to aide you in your searches. You have more
search options in it that you would know what to do with. You
could also use the Merge Data (export) into NoteTab's Outline
format from MailBag Assistance also. Or, you could just use
NoteTab's ^!AppendToFile command and make really big files of
eMail to open in NoteTab and then search them.
I know there are a couple of users that save all the messages
from at least a couple groups and they may upload say a year back
for you and others. Eric is thinking on making a freeware
MailBag which would probably be idea just to have some of the
basic features it has to read the NoteTab lists with.
Try putting a message up on the Basic list for somebody that has
all the back posts for a few of the groups you want. If they do
not have the space on their ISP, YahooGroups has about 20MB for
The group name can be changed below to get to the various groups.

In both Netscape and MSIE, you can also right click on a link, and get an
"Open in New Window" option, although I do prefer Jody's advertisement
myself ;-). NetCaptor also allows you to lock browser tabs so that so
don't have to deal with the shift-click routine for opening new pages. I
use it all the time for yahoogroup lists that I'm 'nomail' on because of
the amout of mail the lists generate.
And about that opening six or more pages, I'm trying to get my husband to
try out cable or DSL and see how fast they open then!
