Recently, the Gmail Help Community has received quite a few queries on this topic involving AOL, Yahoo!, and Outlook accounts. As an attempt towards making the users more comfortable by making the process more visual for them using screenshots, this three-part blog aims to explore the three inbuilt Gmail processes through which one can bring over emails from another account over to a Gmail account. Following the first part where we looked at how to bring over emails from an AOL account, we shall look at how we can bring over emails from a Yahoo! account in this second part. The final part will be on how to bring over emails from a Hotmail account.
It is best to mention it upfront that like my AOL account, my Yahoo! account also has 2-step verification enabled. If you would like to enable it for your Yahoo! account, refer to instructions here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/add-two-step-verification-extra-security-sln5013.html.
If you do not have 2-step verification to your Gmail account, but want to add it, you can do so by following the steps included in this help article: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/185839?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en&oco=0.
Gmail has the following built-in options to bring over emails from other accounts:
We begin the Gmailify process from the window where we select that option.
Now we look at the third option, the Import feature, by clicking on the Import mail and contacts link as shown below.
Clicking on the blue Agree button displays the Authentication successful message.
As with the first blog, if you want me to include any other scenarios, please let me know in the comments and I shall be happy to enhance this article.
