Go to yahoo.com, google.com, hotmail.com or any other web-based e-mail provider and create an e-mail account. If you need an invitation to join g-mail, send me your e-mail address via comment, and I will send you an invite to create a new gmail account.

I’d suggest getting a gmail account… you can set it up to forward to your yahoo account.
