  7. Enter the yahoo email address in the text field in order to forward your Gmail messages. After that, click on the “Next” button once you enter your yahoo email address.
  8. Now you will get the pop-up dialog box showing a message “Confirm forwarding address.” Click the “Proceed” button to continue the forwarding process.
    Note: Gmail will send the confirmation code to your yahoo mail to verify the forwarding address. So you have to verify the code to complete the forwarding process.
  9. Now, open your yahoo mail account and login with your yahoo email and password.
  10. Once you get access to your yahoo mail, search for the conformation code message into your inbox. When you find it, then open the message to confirm the provided code.
  11. Now, click on the “confirmation link” to confirm the request.
    Alternative, you can also copy the code and paste it to the Gmail forwarding address if you can’t get access the link. Sometimes the appeared link can be broken due to some technical issues. So how can you do these steps?
    -Simply copy the code from the confirmation message and paste it in the “confirmation code” box.
    -Now, click on the “Verify” button to complete the confirmation process.
  12. Now, select the “Forward a copy of incoming mail” and enter your yahoo email address in the text field.

  13. You can choose any option from the drop-down below to tell Google about what to do with forwarded messages. So how those options do works for your forwarded messages.
    Keep Gmail’s copy in the inbox tells the Gmail to keep the original incoming message in Gmail inbox as unread.
    Mark Gmail’s copy as read will mark your incoming message as read and leaves in your Gmail inbox.
    -Archive Gmail’s copy instructs the Gmail to mark the forwarded messages as read and then remove the message from the inbox. After that, it will keep the messages in the archive for retrieval. This option is pretty much a useful option that Gmail provides to its users.
    -Delete Gmail’s copy option allows the Gmail to move the incoming messages into the trash folder once they are forwarded to your yahoo mail. These trashed messages are deleted after 30 days.
    Note: It doesn’t matter which option you choose because you will receive a copy of the incoming message to your yahoo mail.
  14. Finally, click on the “Save Changes” button to save changes.

Now, this way, you can automatically forward all your incoming Gmail messages to your yahoo mail. However, if you don’t want to receive all the Gmail messages to yahoo mail, then you can also disable the options.

How can you Disable Automatic Gmail Message Forwarding? 

You can disable the forwarding option with these simple steps down below.

  1. Open your Gmail mail account and sign in with your Gmail Id and password.

Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

How to Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Email service has been there for a long time. And emails you can do a lot of things with your Yahoo Mail, one of which is attaching files, images to your emails. With Yahoo Webmail Service, you get 1TB of storage that is enough for millions and millions of text emails with attachments. However, it limits the size of the message and the attachment sent via their service. This is enough for text documents, a few images, and other small files. But what happens when you have to send a large file from Yahoo Mail?

Thankfully there are some ways you can follow to send a large file through your Yahoo Mail. Let’s have a closer look at how to send a large file from Yahoo Mail.

Yahoo Mail Attachment Size Limit

Similar to most of the popular email service providers, like Gmail, Yahoo Allows users to send an email of up to 25 MB in size. The size also counts the size of the email message. So, if you are trying to send a file that is exactly of 25MB, you won’t be able to send the file. If that’s the case, you can reduce the size of the message or the attachment, which we will discuss in our next subtopics.

Different Ways to Send a Large File From Yahoo Mail

Reducing Size of a Message, You Send

As I have mentioned earlier, the maximum size of the email that Yahoo offers to send at a time is 25 MB. So, if the message you are about to send exceeds the limit a little bit, you can reduce the size of your message by following ways:

  • Compressing the File Before Sending
  • Send Separate Mails if you have multiple files
  • Rather than attaching files send a downloadable link

Now, let’s describe them in detail

Compressing the File Before Sending

There are various desktop and online tools that you can use to compress your files or folders into one.

The most common Desktop tool to compress your file is WinZip and WinRAR. The tool compresses one-to-many files into a zip file that has relatively less size than uncompressed files. Then send your Yahoo email attaching the compressed file. Sending this kind of data, however, requires the receiver to have the same tool to unzip the files.

The most common online tools to compress files are youcompress, pdfcompressor, wecompress, Tinyjped, and so on. These tools require you to upload your files to their web browser and will provide you a compressed folder. You need to download these compressed files and attach them to your Yahoo email. The limitation with the online tool is that you will not get to compress any type of file in one place. Some compressor offers at most two types of files to compress. Meaning, you cannot compress your pdf file on a webpage that compresses images.

Send Separate Mails if you have Multiple Files

Now let’s suppose your compressed files to its extent. However, the file size still exceeds 25MB. You might be thinking about what should you do. This section of the article is for you.

What you can do is. If you have multiple files that you need to send, you can break those files down into small chunks and compress them separately in chunks. Now, the next step is to send those emails messages separately.

For example, I have 30 images with size 1MB each. The total size of the attachment is 50 MB. I used TinyJPEG to compress my images; however, the tool only compressed the image by 25% that led to 37.5MB in total. I can’t send this file, so I again compressed these files using WinRAR, which compressed to further 5%. However, still, I am left with 35.6MB, which I can’t send.

So, the solution is to break down the compressed images into two half and send them in two separate Yahoo emails. this way I can send large file From Yahoo Mail

Send a Downloadable Link

Most of the time, the photographers won’t use compressor tools to compress their images as it will degrade the quality of the picture by a certain amount. And if you have a single file that exceeds the file size that yahoo has limited, then the steps mentioned above won’t work for you. The only option for you is to upload the file somewhere else and sent the shareable link to the receiver adding the link to your email. Now, this is where our next topic comes in. How to link Dropbox to Yahoo, how to use google drive to send large files via Yahoo Mail.
