If you previously downloaded Yahoo but: 1) did not
create an account, 2) cannot remember your account name,
or 3) want to create a second account, follow the instructions
1. When you have completed the installation process,
you should see a confirmation message in your browser window. Click "under " "
If you closed the browser window that displayed the "Congratulations!
You have successfully installed Yahoo Messenger", then you can
go to http://messenger.yahoo.com and
click the "link next
to " "at the top of the page.
2. Complete the Yahoo Account form. A sample form
is shown below.
While it's not required include an an alternate email address on the Sign Up form, it Yahoo login name/password, Yahoo will send you an email with the login name/password to the Yahoo email address that was created when you set up your messenger account. However, since the login and password for your Yahoo email account is the same as the login for your Yahoo Messenger account, you will not be able to retrieve the email. In this case you will be forced to create a new Yahoo account.
3. Write down the User ID and any other pertinent
information from the confirmation screen. Keep this in a safe place
as you will need the login name and password each time you use Yahoo
