Don't trust yahoo "GetMyData" #87
This is not really a bug with this program, but a bug with yahoo's GetMyData service. In addition to using this script to get all my data, I also used the yahoo GetMyData feature. What they sent was woefully incomplete. Meanwhile, this script by IgnoredAmbience got everything. One of my groups had almost 70K messages and this script got them all.
So this is just an FYI. If you were depending on using the yahoo GetMyData service to archive your groups, you will be disappointed.
I would like to +1 this.
I am part of a yahoo group that goes back to November of 1998 well before it was even known as Yahoo Groups. The package that Yahoo sent me doesn't have a majority of the data and the first post Yahoo gave me is from Nov of 2000.
Using the script gives me all the data, files, attachments, etc. It's much better.
