A small Perl script which retrieves all messages from a mailing list archive at Yahoo! Groups
yahoo2mbox is a small Perl script which retrieves all messages from a mailing list archive at Yahoo! Groups (there is a missing copyright sign somewhere here probably). yahoo2mbox stores them into a local file in MBOX which is recognized by all Unix mail readers and good many of other ones.

If you don't know what Yahoo! Groups are, you probably don't need this program. But if you want to search through the existing archive using your favourite MUA instead of Yahoo interface as I did you might like it.

Other interesting features include support for localized and age-restricted Yahoo groups. Unfortunately, automatic address unmangling doesn't work any more (as of December 2003 and probably before) because of a change in Yahoo address presentation algorithm.
