  2. Select Accounts and Import.

    The other option removes your messages from Yahoo Mail. Use Gmailify to manage your Yahoo account from either Yahoo Mail or from Gmail.

    Gmailify doesn't require a subscription to Yahoo Mail Pro. Before Gmailify launched in 2016, you couldn't send or receive Yahoo Mail messages through your Gmail account without subscribing to Yahoo's premium service.

  6. In the Yahoo Mail login screen, enter your username and password, adjust the permissions, and then select Agree.
