Auto Forward New Mail

Please help! I have new mail and I'm trying for the life of me to auto-forward. There is NO ACCOUNTS link to select.

 

I'm about to toss my laptop out the window. Please help!

 

Yahoo is not making this easy...

This might work.

Go to http://contacts.yahoo.com

Click on the email icon and you should be in classic.

Set the forwarding and save. Gear > settings > accounts > primary email.

Refresh the page and you should return to New.

Make sure your phone and email are current. There is no way to verify or recover an account without them.

You should be able to click on the account and another page opens. This is the bottom of the new page.

Currently you must use Classic mail.

 

Click on "return to classic" at the bottom of the gear menu. To return to new you must pick the option at the bottom of the left column.
