A Blogger, a Friend, a Worker, and an Organizer?

Do you have more email addresses than your Yahoo! Mail accounts? Are you a blogger, friend, knowledge worker and cooking workshop organizer—all with a special email address?

An Email Address for Every You in Yahoo! Mail

Yahoo! Mail lets you wear all these hats. Whether you forward your mail to Yahoo!

Mail from your other accounts, want to set up Yahoo! Mail to retrieve it using POP or just want to use an email address other than your Yahoo! Mail address in the From: line when sending mail: you can set up Yahoo! Mail to let you send mail from any of your addresses.

Send Mail From All Your Accounts and Addresses in Yahoo! Mail

To add an account from which to send mail from Yahoo! Mail:

  1. Position the mouse cursor over the gear icon () in your Yahoo! Mail toolbar.
  2. Select Settings from the menu that has appeared.
  3. Go to the Writing email category.
  4. Type the non-Yahoo! Mail account's full email address under Add send-only address.
  5. Click Verify.
  6. Open the email message with the subject Please verify your alternate email address from no-reply@cc.yahoo-inc.com received at the address you've just added.
  7. Follow the this link link in it to verify.
  8. Open the email message with the subject Please verify your alternate email address from no-reply@cc.yahoo-inc.com received at the address you've just added.
  1. Follow the this link link in it to verify.
  2. Back at Yahoo! Mail, click Finish setup.
  3. Enter or edit your name under Sending Name.
    • This is what will appear in the From: line when you send mail and need not be your real name. You can use the role you're playing when using that account, for example, or your name and role.
  1. Enter a name that helps you recognize the account under Description.
    • If you are out of descriptive names and ideas, try the account's email address.
  2. Optionally, enter a reply-to address under Reply-to address.
    • Yahoo! Mail will automatically have entered your main Yahoo! Mail address in this field; this means replies to emails you send from Yahoo! Mail using the address you are in the process of adding will go directly to your Yahoo! Mail address.
    • To receive replies at your non-Yahoo! Mail address, leave empty the Reply-To address field or enter that address in it.
    • You can also enter any other email address under Reply-To address, of course.
  3. Click Done.
  4. Now click Save.
