Yahoo! is one of the top reliable and long-standing email services – and of course, it’s free, fast, and easy to set up. If you don’t have a Yahoo mail account, you can create one from the Yahoo website on your computer or from the Yahoo Mail mobile app on your smartphone or tablet. Then, set up your new account just the way you want, and enjoy the all of Yahoo’s features, and the best ever experience for staying in touch with everyone with an attractive interface and high security.


Create a Yahoo Account

Creating a new Yahoo account on the Yahoo Mail mobile app

Download the Yahoo mobile app from your device’s store: App Store for iOS, Play Store for Android, etc. Install the app just like you normally do, then open it to set create a Yahoo account.

At the initial launch, you will be asked to sign in or create an account. If you don’t have a Yahoo Mail account yet, select “Create Account”. You will be brought to the “Sign up” page in a new window/screen. This is where you will be asked to enter some fairly standard personal information: your name, birth date, mobile number, and gender.

Choose a unique username which will be your main Yahoo Mail username and ID/email address. Then, create your password when your username is accepted. On the next screen, Yahoo will ask to verify that you’re real with a valid mobile number. By tapping “Send SMS” button, a verification code will be sent to your mobile number. Once you receive it, type it in place in the verification window and tap the “Submit code” button to proceed.

And that’s it, you’re all done! Now you are signed into your new Yahoo account, and you can start setting it up and using it.

(Note: creating a Yahoo account on your computer uses almost exactly the same steps, but instead of downloading the app in the first step, you’ll start by going to and clicking “sign in”.)

How to set up your Yahoo account

Your newly created Yahoo account gives you lots of options to personalize things exactly the way you like them. You can set up the options of viewing your email, for example: “Enable conversations” to display the entire email thread in chronological order, or “Show snippets” to display a short overview of your messages while viewing them.

You can choose your multitasking preference, message list density, set up the “Read” flags, change your “Message Handling”, personalize your “Writing Email” options, and save time by “Automatically adding new recipients to Contacts”. You can also adjust the font and font size you like to use for composing your messages, and set a default signature to go with all your sent messages.

The most important way to optimize and streamline your email is to make groups of emails, either by topic, by sender, or by date. Or, you can make special folders for certain senders – whichever way makes most sense for you.

After creating folders and nicely cleaning out your Yahoo inbox, you can easily keep it tidy and organized. When you get a new email, it will go right into your empty inbox. But you can also use email filters so that certain senders go to their specific folders. Plus, you can filter incoming emails according to certain words or phrases within the header, recipient or “CC” fields, the subject line, or even in the text within the body of the email itself.
