I suddenly stopped getting my homestead site emails forwarded to my yahoo account and can't find the setting to restore that mail forwarding. Can somebody direct me to that setting so I can restore email forwarding, please,

If you are inside of your Homestead account, proceed to the Email page, click Manage my email account, then find your email. If you click the blue pencil, this will give you the option to edit the forward.

I have removed the forward temporarily, and added it back. This usually helps fix the problem. Since it is also forwarding to a Yahoo email address, it could be possible that the emails are experiencing delays too. Can you please let us know if the emails begin to forward again?

Please understand that forwarding email uses a technique called spoofing to relay the email. Spoofing looks like spam to many servers. More and more mail admins are blocking spoofed emails. If Todd's solution does not work, then you may need to check with Yahoo to see if they are blocking it.

how do i get my Homestead email to forward all emails to my yahoo account? It is forwarding some and not others and it takes hours before some are forwarded.

We typically do not recommend setting up a forward to a Yahoo account, because Yahoo has strict filters and often times you will notice emails are severely delayed, or do not send if there is content that can appear suspicious to Yahoo's filters.

There are an increasing number of mail servers that will not accept email forwards due to the nature of newer anti spam techniques. This is not set by Homestead, but by the mail admins of the address you are forwarding to. It is not something we can change.

Thanks for the follow-up. I decided to use airmail app and that is working to bring my homestead mail together with my yahoo mail.

That is the best way to do it.
