Copy Contacts from other Email Accounts to Yahoo

183If you haven't noticed yet (like me), Yahoo Mail is currently running a teaser within the mail box that allows you to transfer your email contacts, address book and calender from other email accounts to your Yahoo mail account.

This wizard of Yahoo actually uses a third party service called TrueSwitch to copy information from other email accounts to Yahoo.

How do ya do this?

1. Click on the link provided in Yahoo and you'll be taken to a page where Yahoo will request for your permission to proceed. Read the details/disclaimer from the page and click I Agree if you intend to go ahead.

2. The Transfer your info to Yahoo Mail page appears. Enter your old email id from where you want to copy information and select the domain.
Presently you can copy from 14 different email domains which include Gmail, Hotmail, Msn, AOL, Yahoo, Cox, Comcast, Earthlink,, Juno, Netscape, Netzero, OptOnline and WorldNet.

3. Choose what you want to transfer, like Email, Address Book or Calender.
You are also given the option to notify your old email contacts about this change.
Agree to the Terms of Service if you indeed agree and click Start Transfer.

The email, address book and calender will be transferred to your Yahoo! Mail account within the next 24 hours.

Hey, landed on your blog, nice stuff. I found a cool new tool for our blogs... It helps get latest news for our keywords directly on to our blog. I added it on mine. Worked like a charm.
