I receive my emails from two different sources, Yahoo and Gmail. I believe there is a way to combine both to come to just one site. I would appreciate info on how to do this. Thanks

Mail software often has an auto-forwarding option. Also, POP3 or IMAP can be used to download the emails to a mail program on the local computer. That's what I do.

I use Sea Monkey to bring in via POP3, Gmail, Rogers and Mac mail, 7 different accounts, it works fantastic and is fully cross platform.

IIRC, you can configure gmail to pull mail from other servers.

I've done exactly what James has mentioned. Gmail is my email hub now. I've setup my hotmail account to autoforward all email to my gmail account. I then have a filter in gmail that slaps a blue "hotmail" label on all incoming mail from hotmail so I can easily see in my inbox what is coming from gmail vs hotmail.

Another bonus with gmail as your hub, you can set it up to send email "as" your hotmail or yahoo account. The only thing to keep in mind when doing this some email clients like Outlook will show the email coming in as something like "[email protected] on behalf of [email protected]". There is a setting in gmail somewhere to force it to use the original email as the address when you reply as well so your not mixing email addresses each time you reply to messages.
