A question about auto-forwarding email

Ok, maybe not strictly a mobile question, but I mostly use my accounts on my phone and iPad, so here goes...... ;)

If I set up forwarding from a Yahoo account to a Google account, will the incoming mail from Yahoo show from the original sender, or from me @Yahoo? Hopefully that makes sense! :D

Shows from the original sender AFAIK, though the mail may be tagged as having been forwarded from another account.

Yeah, matty's right. It'll appear to come from the original account; but the usually hidden details would tell the inquisitive recipient that is was forwarded. AFAIK they wouldn't see (easily) what account it was forwarded through, though...
