    Not bad, I currently using auto-forwarding.

    Only missing feature for me in gmail is the ability to auto delete emails over a certain age - as I have thousands of forum reply alerts that I do not need to keep.

    My problem with forwarding my yahoo account is that also spam is forwarded. When I fetch mail the spam stays in the bulk folder.

    True... but the spam filter on my yahoo account has been broken ever since I tried the new beta (plus about half the messages in my spam folder cannot be opened) and going back to the old interface still leaves it all broken, so I just left gmail handle the spam. Totally stopped using Yahoo mail now.

    I'd love to move out of the Yahoo mail account, but I've accumulated too many emails in that account to just give it up.

    If only there was an easy way to transfer my existing 2000+ emails from Yahoo! to Gmail.

    Are you talking about 2000+ messages or about 2000+ subscriptions?

    Messages could be transferred from any pop account to gmail with the Gmail Loader.

    Doesn't this violate Yahoo's TOS? They charge for POP access.

    Certain countries get POP for free (eg I know UK does).

    If they charge for pop access, then you probably paid to get pop access.

    Well, I have my internet connected through AT&T Yahoo! (formerly SBC Yahoo!), so I get pop access.

    I've tried that solution once, but I gave up halfway through the process. Downloading and then sending 1GB of mail was just too tedious. I guess I'll stick with my Yahoo Mail for now.

    Thanks for the idea though. :D
