Yes in your Gmail account if you login from the browser go to Settings/Forwarding and POP/IMAP and next to Forwarding check Forward a copy of incoming mail to and put in your Yahoo address.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
what if the new yahoo address will be the same? I basically don't want to use this gmail business account anymore but i want to be able to access all the archived files etc.
Expert:  Mike replied 4 years ago.
Is the Yahoo account a Plus account? I don't know any way to export all the old mail but if you are using a Yahoo Plus account you cam use Apple Mail and just put both accounts in there to access at any time.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
What diffence does it make if its a yahoo plus account? But once I redirect we DNS mail will no longer to gmail account. but will i still be able to access it? Is there any possibility to discuss this over the phone?
Expert:  Mike replied 4 years ago.
No can't use phone, sorry. Once you set to forward the mail from the Gmail account all new mail will also be sent to your Yahoo address. Not your old mail. You cannot use a mail program other than a web browser for the free Yahoo account only the $19.99 a year Yahoo Plus account.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I understand that the mail will be sent to the new email my question is can i access the defunct gmil account was the DNS settings have been redirected? or will that account shut down and take all the information in folders/labels and archived with it?
Expert:  Mike replied 4 years ago.
No, if it is a work Gmail account it is up to your employer whether to close the account or not. Just forwarding will not close it. DNS has nothing to do with it. I found a way to export your Gmail to Yahoo:

You need to enable pop3 on your Gmail account via the settings tab. There are directions on Gmail's site here:

http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=13273

After you have done that, you can have Yahoo! import email from pop3 account, just like any other pop3 account. The directions for doing this are here:

http://email.about.com/od/yahoomailtip1/qt/How_to_Check_Other_Email_Accounts_with_Yahoo_Mail.htm

The pop3 settings for Gmail are:

pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995

For user, use your fullXXX@XXXXXX.XXX account, and for password XXXXX Gmail password.

You are amazing! I thought this whole process was going to be so much more complicated. Thanks
Expert:  Mike replied 4 years ago.
Great!
Expert:  Mike replied 4 years ago.
Thanks for the feedback! I just want to point out that if you use the POP method you do not need to setup forwarding. Yahoo will just get the mail from the POP account.

thanks!

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
