Setting up a Yahoo Mail address can be done in two ways for smartphone (mobile) and tablet users with the Android operating system.

Steps to set up a Yahoo Mail account:

Go to Settings, then in Accounts and backup, select Accounts. Here you see find + Add account. Select one of the email services in your phone or install a new one: Email, myMail, Outlook, etc.

  • You can install the Yahoo Mail – Organized Email app from the Play Store. With this, you have an easier access to your Yahoo Mail inbox.

Yahoo Mail

Yahoo Mail (webmail – mail.yahoo.com) is one of the oldest e-mail services, a free e-mail platform launched in 1997 by the company. The service is the second largest in the world after Gmail (Google Mail – mail.google.com).

Android is an operating system for devices and mobile phones based on the Linux kernel, originally developed by Google and later by the Open Handset Alliance. The Android platform was launched in 2007 and allows developers to write managed code in the Java language.

Webmail (or web-based email) is an email service that can be accessed using a standard web browser. It contrasts with email service accessible through a specialized email client software. Examples of webmail providers are 1&1 IonosAOL Mail, Gmail, GMX Mail, Mailfence, Outlook.com/Hotmail.com, Yahoo! Mail and IceWarp Mail Server. Additionally, many internet service providers (ISP) provide webmail as part of their internet service package. Similarly, some web hosting providers also provide webmail as a part of their hosting package.

ISP providers and hosting companies, typically use webmail software via 3rd party software such as Roundcube or SquirrelMail.

As with any web application, webmail’s main advantage over the use of a desktop email client is the ability to send and receive email anywhere from a web browser. Its main disadvantage is the need to be connected to the Internet while using it.

The first Web Mail implementation was developed at CERN in 1993 by Phillip Hallam-Bake as a test of the HTTP protocol stack, but was not developed further. In the next two years, however, several people produced working webmail applications.
