How to Access Yahoo Mail from Gmail

Gmail is an email service that is provided by Google, which tends to be a name of quality and innovation.

Due to these innovative services (like fast servers and huge inbox space) lots of people switched to Gmail from Hotmail and Yahoo.

But there’s a way out. You can use the perks of Gmail without losing important mails. Fortunately, Gmail provides the facility of mail access of yahoo email and other inboxes.
