Print pages/emails to PDF, with a structured naming system. Save them in a folder (Google drive maybe) by month? Totally depends what your doing and we need more detail. Specifically why (What are you trying to prove/protect?), budget, etc. We have special industry specific software to do this type of thing at work with invoices etc, but its complex.

We have seen this problem before with some of your posts, its not the entire story. It's just enough info to get some answers but if you gave us more background, chances are the answers you would get are better.

Use Google Chrome. It has a built in "Save to PDF" feature that is awesome.

In fact, the PDF will preserve any embedded links as well, so you can refer to those later.

Prior to discovering this, I was using a PDF printer, but it does not preserve any links and just produces a dumb PDF output.

cheap, fast, good - pick any two.

PSA: Yahoo email is extremely insecure...switch to Gmail if you can!! Hotmail is better but not as good as Gmail.
I use Windows Live Mail. I created a new folder names receipts and move the emails to that folder.

The messages are not stored on my hardware so I figure they are archived about as good as it gets.

Expand your horizons. Explore something new. Get a RasberryPi and learn something.
Print to pdf is a good option, the resulting pdf's will be searchable so you can just use the search functionality in windows to find what you're looking for.
