Stop auto forward

Stop auto forward

How do I stop my Yahoo mail from auto forwarding to another email? The directions on here are from last year and the settings-account settings-forward isn't an option anymore.

Email forwarding hasn't been set up in New Mail yet so you will need to switch back to the previous version in order to access those settings.

Are you sure what you are seeing is your Yahoo account forwarding to your Gmail account and not your Gmail account linked to your Yahoo account and just downloading your new Yahoo email?

Re: Stop auto forward

Thank you! I found the option for forwarding after I switched back. Unfortunately it wasn't shown as being active. Any ideas how it is forwarding everything to my gmail account? and how I can stop it?

Thanks!

Re: Stop auto forward

I forwarded my YAHOO mail to gmail. BAD idea. went through the steps to STOP forwarding at gmail AND YAHOO.. didn't stop. closed the gmail account. now everyone gets a error message that the GMAIL account is closed and the ythink I am not getting my emails- also- my emails from groups get the error message and take my account off the list.

1- CLASSIC MAIL has no (&^%$# settings in it to change forwarding.

2- there is no reference in my YAHOO accounts about forwarding my mail anywhere

3 CLASSIC mail does have a selection START forwarding mail. that does me no good.

 

now what?

I'm not sure what question you are trying to ask and what answer you are looking for.  As my previous response indicates if your Yahoo account shows no forwarding email address set up then it's likely you had your Gmail account set up to download new Yahoo emails.  Now that you have closed your Gmail account there would be no way of checking that now.
