Transfer your email from Yahoo to Gmail

I have received several queries since Yahoo acquisition regarding transferring all emails from Yahoo to Gmail. Here you go –

If you also have above query means you want to switch from Yahoo mailbox to Gmail mailbox for some reasons. Hmm… you may think your idea is nice but it is a time-consuming or depending upon your number of emails in your mailbox.

Two way to do this – a) Manual method b) using third party software

Let me explain both and do whichever you feel good.

a) Manual method (This will only import from your ‘inbox’ folder)

  • Sign in to your Gmail account.
  • Go to Settings (just above on your email list – right upper side).
  • Select Accounts & Import from the menu.
  • There you will see import mail and contacts
  • Select that and follow the migration process

b) Third party software (This will import from your all folders)

  • Download -> install -> run Advik Yahoo Backup Tool
  • Enter your Yahoo mail login credentials
  • Select mailbox folders and click Next
  • Choose Gmail as saving option
  • Enter Gmail login credentials and click Convert
