Need to change phone number on this account


Log Into My Ymail Account

"Ymail," a division of Yahoo!, is not the same as the Yahoo! email service.
The main different revolves around the URL at the end of your email address.

Instead of "@yahoo.com" these addresses are written as "@ymail.com."
This slight variation might confuse you about how to log into your Ymail account.

The login instructions are similar to that of Yahoo! mail. Additionally, you can recover your ID or password if you have forgotten it.

Visit the Yahoo! login page by typing "ymail.com" into the URL bar.
This takes you to both the Yahoo! email sign in and the Ymail sign in.

Type your username into the "Yahoo! ID" box.
This is the part of your email address that comes before "@ymail.com."

Type in your password.
If your password doesn't work, or you don't remember it, choose the blue "I Can't Access My Account" from the bottom of the sign in box.

Choose the option that describes your situation best. Options include: "I Forgot My Password", "My Password Doesn't Work", "I Forgot My Yahoo! ID" and "My Account May Have Been Compromised". Press "Next."

Follow the on-screen directions to set a new password or recover your ID.

Change a Yahoo Mobile Number

When you log out of your Yahoo Messenger account, messages and alerts automatically go to your mobile phone number if it is associated with your account.

You can change your Yahoo Mobile phone number if you have a new number or want to switch to a different device.

New messages and alerts will be sent to the new number you designate after the change. Changes you make to the number take effect immediately.

Click the "Start" button on your computer and hover over "All Programs."
Click "Yahoo Messenger" to open the program.


Log into your Yahoo account with your ID and password.
Click "Messenger" in the top menu and then click "Preferences."


Click "Edit Mobile Phone" to view the mobile settings for your Yahoo account.
Click "Delete" next to "Messenger Phone" and select "Remove Alerts for This Device."

Click "Delete Device" and the phone number will be removed from your Yahoo Mobile account.
Click "Add Alerts Device" and advance to the next step.


Enter your 10-digit mobile phone number in the indicated field. Select your mobile service provider from the drop-down list and continue to the next step.

A text message with a confirmation code will be sent to your mobile phone. Enter the confirmation code from the text message in the field indicated on Yahoo.

Click "Confirm" to add the new number to your Yahoo Mobile account.

Yes, Yahoo messenger does have alerts. You can mange your alerts when you are logged in Yahoo messenger by clicking on the "Messenger" menu and clicking "Preferences". Alternatively, you can press Ctrl + Shift + P. When you are in "Preferences" window, click on "Alerts & Sounds." You can enable or disable alerts.

Each time i got yahoo mail, my yahoo messenger pops up. i don't need it


  1. Open Yahoo! Messenger
  2. Click Messenger --> Preferences or CTRL+Shift+P
  3. Under category click Alerts and Sounds
  4. In the "Alert me when" box click "I receive email in Yahoo! Mail"
  5. Uncheck the boxes next to "Displaying a dialog box", "Showing an icon in the system tray" and "Showing a message in the bottom right corner of my screen". If you prefer not hear the pow alert as well uncheck "Playing a sound..."
  6. Click OK and you're done.
So as not to leave you in the dark, let's also define these three options:
"Displaying a dialog box" is the Windows dialog box that pops up notifying you of new mail. "Showing an icon in the system tray" is the envelope that appears when new mail arrives. "Showing a message in the bottom right corner of my screen" is the box that comes up giving you the subject of the message or how many emails.
Additionally, you can customize all your alerts in a very similar manner: Select the alert you want to change then check or uncheck the boxes as desired. You can even change what sounds you hear.
Hope that helps take some of the aggregation out of your computing experience!\

Start-> Run-> CMD->Msconfig-> Start up tab-> Uncheck Yahoo Messenger-> Apply-> Close-> Restart the computer.
