How do you set up a new Yahoo! email account?

    Type your desired username into the box just below your name. If the name you have selected is not available, text appears on the page indicating that you must choose a different username to continue. Enter a password that is between 8 and 32 characters, includes at least one number and includes both uppercase and lowercase letters.

  4. Enter your mobile number

    Type your mobile number into the appropriate box. If you forget your username or password, Yahoo! can text you information to help.
