Yahoo Mail or Ymail.

Established in 1997, Yahoo Mail is a webmail service offered by Yahoo, which is a subsidiary of Verizon Media. The service is available in more than 25 languages, is estimated to have somewhere in the region of 200 million active monthly users, and can be accessed via a web browser, the Yahoo Mail app, or an email client.

In 2008 Yahoo Mail launched Ymail.com and Rocketmail.com as complimentary  brands, but both domains are now part of the Yahoo! Inc brand, and must be accessed from the same login page.

Previously, users had the option of creating an email address with a range of different email suffixes, including @Yahoo.com, @Yahoo.co.uk, @Yahoo.fr, @Yahoo.es, @Ymail.com and @Rocketmail.com, among others.

However, it is no longer possible to create email addresses with most of these suffixes, as all new accounts must now end with @yahoo.com.

Here, you will need to enter personal details, such as your name and date of birth, and you will also need to choose your new email address. This will take the format of: [email protected].
  3. Once you have entered the required information, click ‘Continue’ and follow the instructions. If you have chosen a username that is already in use, you will be prompted to choose another one. After you have completed the process, your new Yahoo email account will be created and you will be able to access it.

  4. Then, on the next page, enter your password and click ‘Next’ again. There is also an option labelled ‘Show Password’, which can make it easier to correctly enter your login credentials.

Why Am I Having Problems Logging in to Yahoo?

At times, users may run into problems when attempting a Yahoo Mail login, but there are usually fairly simple solutions. Often, the biggest challenge can actually be in pinpointing the cause of the issue, as opposed to actually resolving it. For this reason, it is best to go through a basic troubleshooting routine.

If you are having problems actually loading the Yahoo Mail login page, you should double check that your internet connection is working and you can do this by loading any other web page. You should also make sure you are using the current URL, which is http://login.yahoo.com, as opposed to the old Yahoomail or Ymail login pages.

Assuming you can load the page properly and are having problems with the actual login process, the first step is to make sure you have entered your email address and password properly. Look out for any typing errors, check that you have not included a SPACE at the start or end by mistake, and remember that your password is case sensitive.

It is worth noting that Yahoo has several security measures which may cause difficulties. For instance, accounts are temporarily locked after too many failed login attempts and you could also be asked to complete additional security checks the first time you sign in with a new device. The Sign In Helper will help you to fix most problems.

Should you continue to have difficulties, you may want to try signing in with another device, or at least another web browser. Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer should all work. Alternatively, try clearing your cookies and cache before trying again, or attempt to sign in using an ‘incognito’ window on your browser.

In rare cases, ad-blocking, anti-virus or anti-malware software can interfere with login processes. If all else fails, it may also be worth temporarily disabling any of these applications before trying again.

I Have Forgotten My Username or Password – What Can I Do?

If you have forgotten either your username or password, you may still be able to log in. From the main sign in form, click on the link labelled either ‘Forgotten Username?’ or ‘Forgotten Password?’ and you should be taken to the Sign In Helper. This will enable you to recover a username or reset a password.

You will be asked to enter either your Yahoo email address, your recovery email address, or your recovery phone number, depending on whether you are recovering a username or password. Simply enter the requested information in the field provided, click ‘Continue’ and then follow the instructions to gain access to your account again.

Once you have access to your account, if you want to change your password manually, you can do so by accessing the ‘Account Security’ settings. From there, simply follow the instructions provided.

Where Can I Find the Yahoo Mail App?

If you would prefer to use the mobile app to access your email account, you can download it from either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store. Simply search for “Yahoo Mail” and you should find it on either store. Once you have downloaded and installed the app, you can sign in to your account using your email address and password, as normal.

Yahoo Mail app
To see your messages on the Yahoo Mail App, click on ‘Inbox’ at the bottom of the screen. To find you Contacts, click on ‘More’. To compose a new message, click on the pen icon at the top of the screen.

How Can I Contact the Yahoo Customer Service Team?

See our dedicated Yahoo Mail Support page here, for a full list of Yahoo Customer Service phone numbers, email addresses and chat options.

If you need to get in touch with the customer service team, the first option is to visit the Help page, which can be found at: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/new-mail-for-desktop.

Using the menu down the left-hand side of the page, click on the ‘Contact Us’ button. Enter your email address in the field provided, then select the product or service you need help with from the drop down menu. Continue to follow the instructions and you should be able to reach a member of the customer service team.

Alternatively, you may also find a ‘Chat’ function on the Help page, as well as an option labelled ‘Speak With a Live Agent’, which will allow you to make contact over the telephone.

Does Rocketmail Still Exist?

Yahoo Mail and RocketMail have cimbined into a single email service. Creating a new RocketMail account is not possible anymore. However, you can still access an old, active RocketMail account through Yahoo Mail, simply by logging in through the Yahoo Mail Login page:

Type your Rocketmail email address and password. and include your RocketMail domain name, as in [email protected]. Everything should work normally, but under the new Yahoo brand.

For more information, see your Rocketmail Help page.

ATT Yahoo Mail – Is AT&T Mail Still Part of Yahoo Mail?

Verizon bought Yahoo in 2017, and the acquisition meant that AT&T Mail and Yahoo Mail was separated into two entities. Before this date, you could use a AT&T ID or Yahoo ID to sign in to your email account

As of November 2017, you could no longer sign in to myAT&T or att.net with your Yahoo ID.

If you have an email address ending with @sbcglobal.net, @bellsouth.net or @att.net, visit https://currently.att.yahoo.com or https://currently.com to log in to your email account. Click on ‘Sign In’ or ‘Mail’ and you will be directed to the working Signin.att.com email login page.

If you have an email address ending in @yahoo, then visit https://login.yahoo.com/ to log in  to your email account.

At the time of the ‘unmerging’ in 2017, passwords will not have changed. Your new AT&T Email account would have been empty from the beginning, whereas emails, contacts, and information associated with Yahoo sites would have been stayed in your Yahoo email account.

      • Can’t get in my yahoo mail

      • If there is no activity on a Yahoo Mail account for one year or more, Yahoo may automatically delete the account from the server. Inactive accounts can slow down the Yahoo Mail service for everyone, so keeping servers clean keeps the system healthy. Yahoo may also delete your account if you violate the Yahoo terms of service.
        If the Yahoo ID or email address, that you entered doesn’t match with what Yahoo has on record, you may also get the “Sorry, we don’t recognize that email address or phone number” error message.
        If your password does not match your Yahoo ID you will get a “Invalid password. Please try again ” message.

        In either case, do the following:

        Use the Yahoo Sign-in Helper at https://login.yahoo.com/forgot? to locate your Yahoo ID and get access to your Yahoo account by entering in your recovery mobile number or your alternate email address on record.

        Make sure the “caps lock” or “num lock” keys are OFF, and that you leave out any spaces when you type in your ID, email address or password.

        Update your internet browser’s autofill settings. If your browser is set to remember passwords, you must update your autofill settings, when you change your password.

        Try accessing with another web browser, such as Mozilla, Edge or Chrome. If you can access your Yahoo Mail account in another browser, then the problem is not with your account. You may need to update your browser to the latest version.

        Try accessing your account from another device, such as another computer or a mobile phone, in order to isolate the problem.

        If you suspect that someone changed your password, or your account has been hacked, then sse the Sign-in Helper to get back into your account. Change your password, and review your account settings to undo any changes.

        To reset a forgotten password, visit the Yahoo Sign-in Helper and follow the instructions.
