Yahoo, when you think of that name you mainly think free email. That is correct Yahoo is a free email provider and that's only one of the reasons I signed up.
If you haven't already signed up to Yahoo then all you have to do is go to Yahoo.com and follow the instructions, giving your details and choosing a name for your email address. Once you have signed all you have to do is go to Yahoo.com, click on the MAIL icon and you just have to sign in giving your email and password.
Once you get into your account you will be able to see there are two accounts one is your INBOX and the other is your BULK MAIL.The BULK MAIL folder contains all the bulky emails such as newsletters. The INBOX contains all of your emails, read and unread.
Altogether there are five folders, INBOX, DRAFT, SENT, BULK MAIL and TRASH. The SENT folder is if you have sent messages to anyone and you have saved it and the DRAFT is similiar because you can save your DRAFT for any message that you may have sent. The TRASH contains all your deleted messages, if you would like to empty your trash then click on EMPTY which will be next to TRASH.
COMPOSE is the button which you would click on if you would like to send an email to someone, just fill in the email of the person you want to and/or the subject.
You also have an ADDRESS BOOK which contains all the addresses of any names of people you have added, it is quick and easy to use. Just click on the address book to access it and tick the boxes of the names of the people you want to send an email to.
The OPTIONS allows you to change your password, create or adjust your profile, adjust your filter for junk mail, add a signature and much more.
Free of charge Yahoo allows you to send free invites and greeting crads which are really cool and funky.
You can download Yahoo Messenger once you have got an email address. It allows you to chat to your friends
and family over the net quick and easy. You can add contacts to your list which allows you to send instant messages to them.
Yahoo Messenger gives you alarms if you have recieved any mail in your INBOX and gives you a buzz whn someone has sent you an instant messeage. It aslo ahows when your conatcts are online and offline.
You can access chatrooms from Yahoo Messenger varying from all sorts of topics for all ages, there are international chatrooms as well as local ones.
Thia is a toolbar which you can also download. Once it has been downloaded it appears on your home web page everytime. You can access the search engine, you own personal Yahoo, email address, your finance, news and sport and much more. It is efficient and easy to use and more accessible.
Thsis is one of the best search engines which many categories and websites with links to other search engines that may help. It has many categories ewhich has links to Yahoo Auctions Yahoo Employment and more of its links. It brings you constant updates of current affairss, new ans sport and much more. Yahoo Games links you to all the traditional games to all the more modern one. It also has an advanced search engine.
Overall, Yahoo is an excellent search engine but also provides alot more than that.
