The Yahoo Mail sign up process is a fairly simple and straightforward one. It is through the process in question that you get to create a new Yahoo Mail account. Several situations may make it necessary for you to create such a new Yahoo Mail account:
If you are totally new to Yahoo Mail, you have to create your first account on the system, before you can be in a position to use it.
You may have lost the Yahoo Mail login credentials for your old account, and you decide to simply create a new one, rather than going through the hassle of attempting to ‘retrieve’ the old account’s details.
You may have decided to simply create a new Yahoo Mail account for a special purpose. If, for instance, you already have a Yahoo Mail account, and you normally use it for personal communications, you may decide to create another one, for business correspondence. The idea here would be to separate personal and business correspondence, and hence avoid potential embarrassment.
Regardless of the circumstances leading you to think of creating a new Yahoo Mail account, the Yahoo Mail account sign up process is the same:
Firstly, you need to gain access to the Yahoo Mail sign up page. To do this, you enter the Yahoo Mail website address into your browser. The Yahoo Mail website address is ‘www.yahoomail.com.’ You can also access the same website by entering ‘mail.yahoo.com’ into your address bar. You can also simply access your favorite web search engine (for instance, Google, Bing or Yahoo), and enter a relevant search e.g. ‘Yahoo Mail sign up,’ to access the said page.
The Yahoo Mail home page offers you two options. The first option is that of logging into an already existing account: by entering a keyword and a password and clicking on ‘sign in.’ The second option is that of creating a new account. This is the option you need to take, as a person keen on signing up for a Yahoo Mail account. So, you should click on ‘create a new account.’
Upon clicking on ‘create a new account’ you will be taken to a page containing a form. You need to fill in this form, if you are to get a new Yahoo Mail account. The details required here are very basic, and you shouldn’t have major problems filling them. In the process of filling the form, you will have select a username and a password. The username should be something you’d want to be associated with (as it is the ‘email address’ you will be giving out to others for them to get in touch with you through). On the other hand, the password should be hard for others (including hacking scripts) to guess, but reasonably easy for you to remember. Towards the end of the form, you will have to enter a cryptic ‘captcha’ code, to prove that you are human, and not some software code sent to create accounts automatically. You will have to click on some check boxes, to confirm that you are ready to abide by Yahoo’s terms and conditions. Then an account will be created for you (assuming you filled the form in the right way). You will be redirected into the new account, via an account confirmation page. You can now start using your Yahoo Mail account to communicate with people globally.
