If for any reason, you would like to forward an email from Gmail to Yahoo, you may have to do a slight change to your Gmail settings and undertake a different procedure in sending your emails. It may seem complicated at first but it actually is a very easy thing to do. The following step by step guide is going to walk you through the whole process.
Log in and verify your account
First, you have to log in to your account. If the account is not verified, Gmail first sends you a note indicating that you should verify your address. You can verify your address with your mobile number. Gmail sends you a verification code. Enter this code to your Gmail address to verify.
Use forward tabs
Gmail forwarding gives users the ability to move email messages from their inbox to other external accounts. To be able to use such a function to send emails from Gmail to yahoo, you can use the forwarding tabs to add the yahoo mail. The forward tab will send a message to different email addresses, this could be to your Yahoo account or to that of another person.
Add the Yahoo address to contacts
First, you may have to add the Yahoo address to your list of contacts. Go to your Gmail contacts and click on “add contacts.” A new window will pop up where you have to input the contact. Google is most likely going to deliver email from addresses that feature within your contact list. After this, you can add the contact to your list of forwarding address. To do this, go to settings, forwarding and POP/IMAP tab and click “add a forwarding address.” You will be able to add the address that you had created. Click next to proceed.
Create your message
After clicking next, you can create a message or simply forward another message. To forward the message type the Yahoo address which you would like to send an email address then click “proceed.” Gmail will send an email to the Yahoo account.
Mark the message as ‘Not spam’
You also have to make sure that email sent will not appear as a spam message on the recipients side. To do this, you have to mark the message as not spam. In your Gmail account, navigate to the spam folder then search for emails containing the subject that you would like to send. Select all emails shown, click more then click ‘not spam.’
Verify with Yahoo
To accept automatic forwarding of messages to your Yahoo account, you have to verify automatic sending of messages to the Yahoo account. To do this, log in to your yahoo address and read the message that you sent from Gmail. This email will have a confirmation code. Switch back to the Gmail windows and enter the confirmation code that was sent to the Yahoo account. Enter this code in the ‘verify’ text box. After this Gmail adds the Yahoo account to your list of forwarding address.
Services like Gmail, Yahoo and Outlook block emails to protect you from malicious or unwanted mails. This is why you have to verify the account before forward emails from Gmail to Yahoo. The above procedure is however going to help you forward emails from your Gmail to another Yahoo account.
