Yahoo! Mail Sign In
Launch your browser and go to the address mail.yahoo.com. This will take to the main page of Ymail. This is where users can sign in if they already have accounts or sign up for new ones for those who don’t. Look for a header that says ‘Don’t have a Yahoo! ID?’ It is located below the log in form. Click on the Sign Up link to get started on creating a new account. This will launch a form where you will be required some of your personal information.
On the sign up form that appears, fill in the required information in the appropriate fields. Some of the information you’re obligated to submit truthfully includes your first and last names, gender, date of birth, country and postal code. The display name can be changed later but as for your first and last names, they can’t change.
Choose a preferred username and password
One of the main disadvantages of using popular email service providers like Ymail is that with so many users, it’s hard to find a username ID that’s not already in use. For this reason, Yahoo has a ‘Check’ button where one can check for availability of their preferred username.
Type your preferred Yahoo ID or email and click on Check. If it’s not available for use, try tweaking a little by adding a number, a character or use an ID that’s not necessarily based on your name. Keep in mind that in most cases, Yahoo Mail will provide suggestions of username ID’s you can use. Whether you decide to use one of those suggestions or keep looking is entirely up to you.
Once you have chosen username, the next step is to choose a strong password. Like Hotmail, Yahoo provides a strength bar that lets you how strong your password is. A mixture of uppercase and lowercase letters, characters as well as numbers makes even the shortest password very strong.

Password recovery information
It’s important to supply a valid alternate email address as this is the primary method used by Yahoo Mail to recover your account. You can also choose a secret question and provide a valid answer. The information you submit at this stage is vital hence the emphasis on remaining honest.
The final step is to confirm you aren’t automatic software or a robot by solving a captcha code then clicking on ‘Create my Account.’ You are now set to go.
