    To configure your Gmail to download your Yahoo Mail emails with POP3 first open your Gmail settings:

    Then go to the Accounts and Import tab:

    Scroll down to the section for adding a POP3 account that you own:

    Type in your Yahoo email address and click next:

    username at yahoo.JPG

    Type in your complete Yahoo email address, password, consider the options for leaving a copy of mail at Yahoo or applying a label to your Yahoo email, then click Add Account:

    I do not recommend sending as Yahoo from Gmail since that will be more likely to cause your email to be marked as spam by other email services:

    send as yahoo from gmail.JPG

    When you are done your Yahoo email will be imported to Gmail and should start appearing within a few minutes.
