Re: How to download email messages from Yahoo Groups in Debian?

Thank you, but I need some more help.

I've downloaded the script, but the README says that I need to supply
"the T and Y cookie" and that I should be able to extract them from my

My browser is Firefox. I've checked and it doesn't seem to provide a
way to extract cookies. Apparently that requires installing an
extension, and I don't know whether Debian provides that (I'd rather
avoid installing random extensions from the Internet).

Furthermore I don't know what "the T and Y cookie" are and how to find
them among other cookies.

Any help will be much appreciated.
