If you have multiple email accounts (including Yahoo Mail), but if you prefer to use only one, you can easily auto-forward a copy of your incoming email messages from an email account to the email account which you prefer to use more. Below we have provided step-by-step instructions on how to enable the auto-forward feature in your Yahoo Mail account.
Steps to Activate Auto-Forward Feature in Yahoo Mail
1.) Sign in to your Yahoo Mail account and move your mouse cursor to the Gear icon located. A drop-down menu will appear.
2.) From the drop-down menu, click on the Settings option. A Settings window will open.
3.) Under Settings window, click on the Accounts option.
4.) Scroll down and click on the Forward option.
5.) Enter the email address on which you wish to forward the incoming emails.
6.) Next, you will see two options on the screen
- Store and forward
- Store and forward and mark as read
If you select Store and forward option, the incoming email will be stored on your Yahoo Mail account and also it will be forwarded to another email address. You will see a notification for it. However, in case you select Store and forward and mark as read option, the incoming email will be stored on your Yahoo Mail account and will also be forwarded to another email account with “marked as read” notification. You can select any one option as per your preference.
7.) Click on the Verify button. Yahoo will send a verification email to the email address entered by you.
8.) Open the verification email and follow the instructions given on it.
9.) Once verified, get back to your Yahoo mail account and click on the Save button.
10.) Send a test email to check if the auto-forwarding function in your Yahoo Mail is working correctly or not.
