Hi family,

I have a yahoo account, which has nearly 200 emails of pure useful content which I want to keep. I am cancelling my Yahoo account as I no longer use it.

Is there a way to mass send the 200 emails over to my gmail account or would I need to forward the emails one by one?

Thanks

Chigs

Chigs try forwarding all to the g-mail account, hit forward, click on all you wanna forward and forward it as an attachment, you can do it from google not too sure you can do it from Yahoo.

Yep, I have done similar. Ctrl A and C and V and X are old old keyboard strokes from the good old days. Good luck Chigs.

Well, I have done it by accident.
I once dumped 30,000 emails in someone's Gmail account.
I am still shocked by the incident. All my personal info is included in there. Luckily, he is not too savvy on computers/the internet. He probably will not use it maliciously to cause me harm.
Anyways, I did control A to select all, control C to copy, then sent an email to, then paste. It may not be the best way, but you will have access to it in your Gmail account.

Thanks, Abie. I want to cancel Yahoo altogether. But I want to keep the 200 emails as its pure content. I shall forward one by one to Gmail. Thanks

If you have emails other than your 200 emails, select all your Yahoo messages (just one checkmark at the top bar) after you have sorted them out and forward them to your Gmail address.

If they are the only emails you have or if you want to import all of them into Gmail, Gmail has a tool to import data from other email accounts.

Thanks, Tom. But I am not getting the option to send once I select all the emails. I shall do this one by one. Thanks.

Ahh, this looks easier. Then once I move the emails into a foldr=er, I can just delete the Yahoo account. Thanks for this Tom :)
