Yahoo provides an e-mail service and ID that is free for anyone to use, which is particularly useful if you need multiple IDs or have an interruption in your regular Internet service. A Yahoo ID provides not only an e-mail account, but also gives you access to Yahoo Messenger and playing Yahoo online games. Registering for a new Yahoo ID only takes a few moments and requires little personal information.
