You could cut and paste it from the email into a text file called
releases.txt.  Save the file and move it into /var/cache/yum

Either this is a bug somewhere in the chain between you and fedora or
you have some kind of filtering activaed.  What happens if you try wget
or curl to get the file?  Or galeon or seamonkey or konqueror?
