Gmail

Can anyone help me setting up a new gmail account?

I've been using yahoo all this time, but need a gmail account now.

I've got it set up that my new name is Zhizarazarazoz@Gmail.com, but can't get it to transfer my mail from yahoo. It says it can and offers me that option, but doesn't give me a chance to enter my yahoo address.

I'm totally confused. Please help me some/anybody.

Sometimes with of new accounts of emails, the options have not set into the account properly. In time it shall operate. You may try to refresh of the page, re-open of another window and give it some of time.

Gmail is of a hairy bugger but it shall work for you with time.

With love,

You basically have two email accounts now. Go into the user settings for the old (yahoo) account and enter the new email address.

I am not exactly sure how Yahoo's set up is like.
Let me check and get back to you.

Thanks, RB.
Do you mean like a filter?

I'm not about to add an expensive account just to make this transfer. I'll just gradually let everyone know how to reach me.

I'd much rather have my yahoo emails automatically come up in Gmail.

I would not pay for it either. There was a time when this was as easy as 1-2-3. You could redirect email at anytime you wanted for free.
Now it seems they want money to be able to switch.
That is why I don't use web based email accounts.
I have two of them for the obvious reasons, but rarely are they ever used.

GG. You have to have a paid version of Yahoo to do this. It used to be free on every web based email accounts.

This is why I prefer to use my ISP email account. The flexibility and professional nature of this type email suits me best.

Zhizara, there is an Import function on Gmail. When you are setting up your Gmail, it will ask you if you want to import addresses from somewhere. It should walk you through how to do it.

Thanks all for the answers. The problem I'm having is that yahoo changed within the last couple of days and doesn't give me the options that RollBones GG suggested. I did seem to have a chance to forward to the Gmail account, but I have my doubts whether what I did actually accomplished my desire. I'll just wait and see for now. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
