Yahoo wants to be the central hub for all of your email, including its rival, Gmail. Here’s a look at how to set up your Gmail account in Yahoo Mail.
Yahoo recently added the capability to add your Gmail account to your Yahoo Mail. After adding your Gmail account, it will fetch your recent 200 messages, and allow you to search your entire Gmail archive (including attachments).
If you have multiple email accounts on different services, Yahoo can be your central hub to manage Outlook (Hotmail), AOL, and, of course, Yahoo email. It also provides the ability to sync Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter contacts.
Add Gmail to Yahoo Mail
You can also do this on your mobile device with the Yahoo Mail app, but here’s a look at doing it via the web interface on a computer.
From Yahoo Mail, go to Settings > Accounts and select Add another mailbox.
Then select Google from the list of providers.
Now it’s just a matter of following the onscreen instructions. You’ll need to enter your account, description, and credentials. Of course, if you have Two-Factor Authentication enabled (which everyone should), there’ll be an extra step.
After you’ve created the account, you’ll see your Gmail account is pending while it gathers your emails. Then you can send, receive, and manage Gmail from the Yahoo web client.
You’ll be able to manage Gmail via the Yahoo Mail app on Android and iOS, too.
