How can we download a group's messages, in order?
I have been through the download instructions in depth. There seems to be nothing to indicate how to download an entire group's messages. Can the group admin do this? We need the posting order preserved or the message number included with the message. With no answers, there's no way we can finish by 10/28/2019.

My download request was ready. I downloaded data for 24 groups. It was 13.48 KB of nothing!! I don't know what to do with the .json files????

Google "Personal Groupware". They can help.
The group I moderate has close to 30,000 messages. From what I have read on the thread "How can we preserve group message base?" there seems to be no provision Yahoo has for us to download everything, even if it's just the message bodies. Yahoo is allowing sabotage by corporate infiltrators paid by FB and Google

It's frustrating enough to be forced to move all our data, but to do this with basically zero tools is a travesty. Yes, we've had a decent ride, overall. But why make things so aggravating on those who are working to retain their data?
