Today we are really happy to be able to add support for Yahoo Mail in YippieMove. For the ﬁrst time email can easily be moved in and out of Yahoo Mail accounts. Yahoo Mail, the worldʼs largest provider of email services, does not by itself provide any method for users to transfer email between different accounts and providers. YippieMove breaks down this barrier and enables average users to migrate their own email to or from Yahoo Mail accounts.
Since we launched YippieMove, our customers have been asking for support for Yahoo Mail. Today we are finally able to offer our customers this service.
While many modern email providers, such as Googleʼs Gmail, have opened up to allow easy access to a userʼs email, Yahoo Mail users are still locked in. This is why we are proud to announce support for Yahoo Mail in YippieMove. Finally, this vendor lock-in is broken, and users are free to move their emails in and out of Yahoo.
YippieMove now has a potential reach of over a third of the worldʼs email users. Users can transfer mailboxes to and from Yahoo Mail as well as any of the more than 100 different email providers currently supported.
Guidelines for Yahoo Mail users looking to move
With this new addition to YippieMove, we’ve solved one of the main issues with switching email provider, namely moving the actual emails.
With the emails moved, let’s move on to the next problem — incoming mail. The best way to deal with this is email forwarding. Unfortunately this service requires Yahoo Mail Plus which costs $19.95 per year. If you’re not willing to spend that, you can use the free vacation response-feature and write a note telling everyone emailing you that you’ve switched email address.
The next thing you might want to move is your contacts. To export your contacts is quite straight forward. However, in order to access the export feature, you need to switch to Yahoo Mail Classic. Once you’ve exported your contacts you can import that file into your new email provider.
