Do you really feel that exporting Yahoo to Zoho mail is a difficult task? If you still have such a feeling, don’t worry, as you finish this article, it will become real easy for you. Transferring data from Yahoo mail account to Zoho mail is a simple process and there are multiple methods to complete this task.

One option that you all might have noticed or tried is the email forwarding facility. This option is somewhat useful, but I want to ask, does it forward the old emails as well. The answer from my end is a NO. This process will move only the new emails that came after the email forwarding was set on Yahoo mail account.

In such case what is a solution. This article will guide you on all the approaches you can follow to take the Yahoo emails to Zoho Mail without misplacing an email data.

Exporting Yahoo to Zoho Mail – Techniques

Talking about the techniques, we have an option of configuring Yahoo mail on Zoho. With this option, you can access the Inbox of the Yahoo mail in the Zoho account.

Another approach that we have verified is using the Zoho Emails Import facility. Here as well, you must be aware that yahoo does not have any form of email downloading facility. For that, we will be using the Yahoo mail backup software. After downloading the email data in Zoho mail format, we will import it into Zoho account. 

Let us start with each approach in deep.

Approach 1# Setup Yahoo to Zoho Mail

  1. Open Zoho mail sing-in page and Login with Zoho account credentials.
  2. Go to settings option and click on Add POP3 account from Mail accounts division.

Where This Option Limits the User?

 As said above, this process moves all the emails to the inbox folder in the Zoho mail panel. No folder structure, no email read/ unread status. All emails seem to be unread here. This moves the user to trouble as the categorization of emails (important) with folders will be difficult.

If a person having a lot of emails within multiple email folders will become tired of reaching each required email like this. There are situations where you don’t need to move all emails as well. In that case, do we need all these emails assembled in bulk in Inbox folder on Zoho mail?
