How to Set up Automatic Forwarding Feature in Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Mail forwarding is a free feature offered by Yahoo Mail. There are two ways to auto-forward your Yahoo emails to Gmail:

Method 1: Using POP3 settings in Yahoo Mail

This method only applies to new emails. Existing Yahoo emails won’t be automatically forwarded to your Gmail Account.

Step 1: Access Your Yahoo Mail Settings

  • Log in to your Yahoo Mail account.
  • Click the gear icon in the top right corner and select Settings.
  • In the left sidebar, click Accounts.

Step 2: Configure POP3 settings

  • Click Add another mail account.
  • Select POP and click Next.
  • Enter your Gmail address and click Next.
  • Enter your Yahoo Mail password and click Next.
  • Choose the folders you want to forward and click Next.
  • Options for existing Yahoo emails:
    • Keep them
    • Delete them
    • Archive them

Step 3: Verify in Gmail

  • Go to your Gmail account.

  • Enter your Yahoo Mail address and click Next.
  • Click Next again.
  • Enter your Yahoo Mail password and click Next.
  • Choose how frequently you want Gmail to check for new Yahoo emails.
  • Click Add Account.

Method 2: Using a third-party forwarding service

If you want finer control over your forwarding, consider paid services like Mailstrom or ForwardMe. Third-party services require your Yahoo Mail login credentials. So, choose reputable ones only.

Step 1: Create a Forwarding Service Account

  • Sign up for your chosen service and create an account.

Step 2: Add Your Yahoo Account

  • Follow the service’s instructions to add your Yahoo Mail account.

Step 3: Set Up Email Forwarding

  • Add your Gmail address as the forwarding destination.
  • Configure your forwarding preferences:
    • Forward all emails
    • Filter by sender or specific keywords
    • Set forwarding rules

Step 4: Save and Activate

  • Save your settings and activate the forwarding service.

By implementing one of these methods, you can effectively streamline your email workflow and experience the convenience of managing your Yahoo and Gmail messages in one central location.
