How To Create An Email Account

Updated on July 26, 2011

Creating an email account is simple. First, choose an email service that you prefer (major ones include Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, etc). Next, decide what screen name you wish to have. This will act as both your login name and your email address name (ex. yournamehere@yahoo.com). If the name is taken, try a variation of the name, or add numbers, spaces or hyphens in it. After you have chosen a name, you will have to create a password and a security question/answer. Make sure to choose a password that you'll be able to remember, but will be difficult for others to guess (as a warning for those making an account for the first time, NEVER give out your password, as there are many scam and phishing sites that will undoubtebly try to steal your information) . The final step is to fill out your personal information and activate your account. Once this is completed, you will be able to use your email to send and receive messages, add addresses and phone numbers into your contact book, use your calendar, and much more.
