Default Easy way to forward yahoo mail to gmail without paying for yahoo plus

I got tired of not receiving yahoo mail when I was using wifi. Here is a way to forward yahoo mail for free to gmail. I also like receiving all my mail in one inbox. Here is a link to the original androidforums thread.

I have two questions. First, if POP and Forwarding are enabled, couldn't you simply set up a pop account on the phone... thus bypassing the forwarding to gmail?

Secondly, if you forward to gmail then don't you loose the ability to send from your yahoo address? Or is this just a fix to receive yahoo over wifi... and it is still necessary to be in 3G to send?

This still works. Just did this and it works great. If you want your mail to be sent from @yahoo.com on your phone, make sure you send the email from your yahoo email program on the phone, NOT the gmail one. The yahoo email I keep strictly for sending my emails and the gmail program for receiving my mail. Kind of a pain, but the ability to keep my yahoo email AND get notifications, in real time, on my phone is well worth it. It's a shame yahoo gets shafted on the android devices but this is a clevar, free, way around it

Great solution. Like my yahoo mail and this is a great way of still receiving it, but just getting it all in one place.

When I was using it, I found that my emails that were going to my yahoo account was literally forwarded, meaning I did not have a single new email on my yahoo account.

Since my yahoo account is my main email, I had to stop the forwarding.

Default Does not work for me

Hi and thank you to montero1dfw for this great tip. Only it does not work for me. Using Windows 7, maybe because of this?
Thanks for an answer

I ran across this thread while trying to forward the 2011 Yahoo! Mail to my MobileMe account (I'm not starting a discussion over OS's).

Since it's no longer as easy as clicking "Return to Yahoo! Classic", are there any ideas as to what I should do?
