Most email providers require a first and last name, a user name and a password. Some email hosts let users select any characters they choose for the password, while others require a special combination of letters and numbers. A birth date is also required since most providers require users to be of a certain age. Yahoo users are required to list a valid phone number in order to register for an email account.
