Switching email providers doesn’t have to be a stressful task. You can transfer all email and contacts from Yahoo directly to your Gmail account as if nothing has changed.

After the transfer is complete, you can send email from any account at any time; your Yahoo or Gmail email address. Just select one in the “From” section when writing messages or replying to existing messages.

How to Transfer Yahoo Contacts to Gmail (and Emails Too)

Sign in to your Yahoo account and your Gmail account to prepare to transfer messages and address book.

  1. From your Yahoo account, collect all the messages you want to transfer to Gmail. Do this by dragging or selecting and moving emails into your inbox.
