Hi Hubert.
The way I keep the information I want to save is by making some new
folders.  I have a folder for "rtty info", "ant info", "contest info",
"stuff", etc.  If I find something on the Towertalk reflector I want to
save, I put it in the "ant info" folder.  Same with contest, rtty, etc. 
Keeps it all separated out by catagories so you don't have to search
through 2 or 3 thousand messages.  There's a wealth of info on this
reflector.  Some people also print it out and put it in notebooks.. 73
