    I want to mainly just use gmail now since I get so much junk in my yahoo email. I just am wondering how I can have my mail forwarded to gmail.

    Thanks in advance

    No need to forward -

    Login to your gmail account.

    Click on Settings.

    Click "Accounts and Imports".

    Around the middle of the page, look for "Get your mail from other accounts in Gmail using POP3". Click on the button "Add POP3 Email Account".

    From there its self explanitory :)

    Fowarding mail will also foward the spam that goes to the account. Just change your address with those people you want to have it.

    if you only have a free account with yahoo it won't let you forward unless you pay for a premium account. I have the same problem. I think it's really stupid to have to check email in two different programs

    i was trying to figure out the same thing for my sister... told her she needs to move to gmail, but forwarding wasn't an option bc yahoo sucks and thinks they need to charge for that kinda crap!!!

    yeah forwarding and pop3 access is free on gmail and always has been. basically everything you have to pay for on yahoo is free on gmail.
