Ymail sign up for a Yahoo! account grants access to its massive online community while simultaneously obtaining free email address. However, you can no longer sign up for a @ymail.com email address; @yahoo.com is the only domain available to sign up for a new account with. Nonetheless, the @ymail.com email address (created when the option was available) is functionally identical to the @yahoo.com email address.
This article describes the step-by-step procedure for creating a new Yahoo! account for free. You can also watch a video, at the end of this article, about this procedure.
