How to Forward Yahoo Email to Gmail or Other Emails


Do you want to read all Yahoo email messages from another email account? We’ll tell you how to do this.

Managing multiple email accounts is a difficult task. We should sign in to each account regularly to check and respond to the messages. As we know, it is not practical always. Smartphone users can use email apps to access all email accounts from a single interface. But email management on computers is entirely different and we should find alternative solutions for that.

Yahoo email users can forward all emails they receive to Gmail, Outlook, or any other email service. Thus you can save time in handling emails. The forwarded messages are still accessible in your Yahoo inbox and so you can sign in to the account anytime to check them.

Forwarding Yahoo emails to Gmail

1. Sign in to your Yahoo email first. If you are using a new Yahoo mail interface, shift to classic mode temporarily. The feature we’re going to explain is available in the classic version only.
