What Is Yahoo Mail Forwarding and How Does it Work?

Yahoo Mail forwarding is a useful feature that allows you to manually or automatically direct incoming messages to another email address.

When you choose to forward an email message, Yahoo creates a new message with a copy of the original message. In addition to the email body itself, it also includes information about the original sender, the original recipient, the time the message was sent, and its subject.

Yahoo email forwarding has many practical uses. Users can manually forward a single email so that other people can read it, or they can set up automatic email forwarding in Yahoo Mail to create copies of incoming emails for backup purposes.

Regardless of why you're interested in learning how to forward emails in Yahoo, our detailed step-by-step instructions will help you master Yahoo Mail forwarding in no time.

How to Forward Yahoo Mail to Gmail?

Gmail is the most popular email service in the United States, so it's no wonder that Yahoo Mail forwarding to Gmail is a hot topic.

Just keep in mind that Gmail offers far less storage space than Yahoo Mail (15 GB versus 1 TB), and the storage space is shared among all Google services, including Google Drive, Google Photos, and others.

If your Yahoo inbox receives a lot of emails, you might run out of available Gmail storage space sooner than expected. To prevent this from happening, use an inbox cleaner like Clean Email (more about it at the end of this article).

To manually forward Yahoo Mail to Gmail:

  1. Log in to your Yahoo inbox.
  2. Open the message you want to forward to Gmail.
  3. Click the right-facing arrow on the top toolbar.
  4. Enter the recipient's email Gmail address.
  5. Click the blue Send button.

To automatically forward Yahoo Mail to Gmail:

  1. Log in to your Yahoo inbox.
  2. Click the Settings icon in the top-right corner.
  3. Select the More Settings option.
  4. Select the Mailboxes category from the left menu.
  5. From the Mailbox list, select your Yahoo address.
  6. Add your Gmail forwarding address at the bottom of the right column.
  7. Click Verify.
  8. Go to your Gmail inbox and verify your email address.
  9. Return to Yahoo and click Save to close the Settings window.

How to Stop Automatic Yahoo Email Forwarding in Yahoo Mail

Automatic email forwarding is a great feature that can save you a lot of time. If Yahoo is your service provider of choice, then you have multiple options how to forward email messages to other address. But what if you want to stop automatic forwarding?

In that case, you need to complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to your inbox.
  2. Click the Settings button and select More Settings.
  3. Go to Mailboxes and click the primary mailbox account.
  4. Disable the forwarding of your email account.

To turn off individual forwarding filters, switch to the Filters tab and click the Delete button next to each forwarding filter you want to delete. You can have up to 500 filters active at the same time, so it may take you a while to go through them all depending on how many you’ve created in the past.

How to Forward Yahoo Mail to Outlook?

Microsoft offers 15 GB of storage space per free Outlook.com account. Users can increase this limit by purchasing an Office 365 subscription.

The most affordable Office 365 subscription is called Office 365 Personal, and it costs $6.99 per month or $69.99 per year. Included in it is 50 GB of storage space, 1 TB of OneDrive cloud storage, and all major Office applications (Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote).

But even 50 GB of storage space is nothing in comparison with Yahoo Mail's 1 TB of storage space. If you want to set up automatic email forwarding in Yahoo Mail to Outlook, we recommend you first use Clean Email to block spam emails and get rid of unwanted subscriptions.

To manually forward Yahoo Mail to Outlook:

  1. Log in to your Yahoo inbox.
  2. Open the message you want to forward to Gmail.
  3. Click the right-facing arrow on the top toolbar.
  4. Enter the recipient's email Outlook address.
  5. Click the blue Send button.

  6. Add your Outlook forwarding address at the bottom of the right column.
  7. Click Verify.
  8. Go to your Outlook inbox and verify your email address.
  9. Return to Yahoo and click Save to close the Settings window.
