How to Enable Automatic Mail Forwarding in Yahoo?

Yahoo is one of the Internet users’ favorite email clients for a number of well known reasons. From features to interface, Yahoo definitely offers something that stands out. One such feature is the ‘auto forward’ provided by yahoo mail, where it forwards your email to the address you want.

For example, you have a large number of email addresses and do not have time to check each one. As a result, you may miss out on some of the most important high-priority emails. To avoid missing important e-mail messages, Yahoo allows you to forward Yahoo messages to any other e-mail application, preferably the one you sign in to every day.

Not a joke! You can use Yahoo mail forwarding and make your email more organized. Let’s start the procedure.
