Import Yahoo or other IMAP Mail to Outlook
For almost two years, I've read complaints by users of Yahoo email about a host of complaints, including difficulties with password resets, problems logging in, loss of features, spam filters not working, and more.

Tired of the problems with Yahoo email?  The Outlook Team has a simple solution.  Finally, Yahoo and many other IMAP-enabled email can be imported to your account. 

The steps are really simple.  Just go to your Inbox and click the "gear" icon in the upper right, selecting Options.  Next, click "Import email accounts" and select the option for Yahoo.

When the window below opens, merely choose from where you want to import your account.  Expand the Option link to select how you want to import your email.

While the import is being completed, you can learn more about forwarding Yahoo mail from the linked Yahoo KB Article, Automatically forward emails with Yahoo Mail.

Now you can get all of your email in one place!  With rules, it is easy to direct mail to specific folders.


Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...
