how to transfer att email which is yahoo email, to gmail

There are two main methods you can use to transfer your AT&T email (which is likely a Yahoo email address) to Gmail:

Method 1: Import Emails (Recommended for smaller inboxes):

This method is ideal if you have a relatively small number of emails in your AT&T/Yahoo inbox. It allows you to import all your emails at once into Gmail.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Sign in to your Gmail account.
  2. Click on the gear icon in the top right corner and select See all settings.
  3. Go to the Accounts and Import tab.
  4. In the “Import mail and contacts” section, click on Add a mail account.
  5. Choose “Import mail and contacts” and click Next.
  6. Enter your Yahoo email address ( address) and click Next.
  7. You’ll likely be redirected to Yahoo’s sign-in page. Enter your Yahoo email login credentials and allow access if prompted.
  8. Choose whether you want to import your emails, contacts, or both. You can also select if you want to keep a copy of your emails in Yahoo or delete them after importing.
  9. Click Start import.

The import process might take some time depending on the number of emails you have. Once it’s complete, you’ll see your Yahoo emails in your Gmail inbox under a new label (usually named after your Yahoo email address).

Method 2: Forwarding (Better for ongoing use):

This method is better if you plan to continue using your Yahoo email address occasionally and want to receive new emails there as well. Here’s how to set it up:

  1. Sign in to your Yahoo email account.
  2. Navigate to your Yahoo Mail settings (gear icon or options menu).
  3. Look for a section related to forwarding or email accounts.
  4. Find the option to “Add a forwarding address” and enter your Gmail address.
  5. Verify the forwarding address by following any instructions from Yahoo.
  6. Choose “Forward all incoming mail to the specified address” or a similar option.

Now, any new emails sent to your Yahoo address will be automatically forwarded to your Gmail inbox. You can still access your original Yahoo emails by signing in to your Yahoo account directly.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Security: Make sure to enable two-factor authentication on both your Yahoo and Gmail accounts for better security.
  • Spam filters: You might need to adjust your spam filters in Gmail to avoid important emails from your Yahoo address getting filtered out.
  • Labels: Consider creating labels in Gmail to organize your imported Yahoo emails if you have a large number of them.

I hope this helps you transfer your AT&T/Yahoo email to Gmail!
