    This was the tip i was searching for a long time. Thanks. I tried this and it was working for me. But there is one more step after doing all these, (would be good if you can add these too in your blog (if you think it is worth))

    1. After you save your changes by entering the email id. you will get a confrimation email to the new email id you have specified.

    2. Go to that email account where you can see the mail from yahoo, click the link specified there. when that is done you get the message – “Your email address has now been verified.”

    start receiving yahoo emails in your new email account.
