Tool for downloading Yahoo! Groups messages for offline reading?

Anyone have a script or tool, preferably free, to download Yahoo Groups messages so I can read them off line? Normally I use HTTrack for offline browsing but I can't seem to get it configured to only download the messages from one goup. Either I miss a bunch because of the interstatials, or I end up attempting to download all of Yahoo.

Does this fit your needs? You could probably tweak it pretty easily to only download new messages.

Looks perfect. I don't have perl on my windows box right now but that's no problem. And I'm actually wanting the old messages. I just signed up for a group and I'm wanting to skim through the 30,000+ messages in the archive.

All of the groups to which I'm subscribed now have little orange XML buttons, if you get my drift.

Okay, some, not all. Not sure why.
