Re: How do I Setup Email Forwarding to a Gmail Account?

Greetings @21Rouge!

 

Try these instructions and let me know whether or not they work:

 

Automatic forwarding sends a copy of incoming messages from your Rogers Yahoo Mail account to another email address. You can turn on email forwarding in Settings. The forwarding address can't be one of your recovery email addresses.

 

  1. Click Settings Image of the Settings icon..
  2. Click More Settings.
  3. Click Mailboxes.
  4. Click the primary mailbox account.
  5. Under Forwarding, enter the Forwarding Address.
  6. Click Verify.
  7. Log in to your forwarding address and follow the instructions sent there.

Regards,

RogersCorey

Thanks Corey. Your instructions were good.

 

(Odd that Rogers tech support via chat told me that it wasnt possible to do mail forwarding from a rogers address 🤔)

As far as I can tell the link you provided is not "correct". Do you mnd checking?

 

If true this would be quite inconvenient for me. 

 

Is there no "simple" way around this coming 'restriction'?

The link?
There is a message (which I have copied and pasted exactly as shown) in my Inbox from Yahoo. If this seems inaccurate to you, how do I post the screenshot of what they have displayed in my inbox (it's clearly not an email from them) here?

1. The link you provided in your previous post does not go to a page regarding the topic you're trying to get across.

2. When logged in and composing a  post, there is a "camera" icon at the top of the post. Click it and you can post a screenshot.

Re: How do I Setup Email Forwarding to a Gmail Account?

Hello @JPThornhill 

 

Email forwarding allows you to manage all your other email addresses in one tidy inbox. Talk about convenience!

 

You're right! It does appear (This feature is going away - As of 1/1/2021 this feature will no longer available for free Rogers Yahoo Mail users. ) this feature will be discontinued as of January 1st, 2021.

 

Although when I navigate to the Yahoo Help & Support section it there is a sticky note about the service being discontinued however when I click on the link it doesn't work.

 

If I were a betting man I'd say as per the message from Yahoo regrettably the email forwarding feature will be removed as of January 1st. 

 

Kind Regards,

RogersMike
