    One of the easiest ways is to install the MailTo extension if you are using Chrome -

    Obviously you would need a yahoo email account!

    Actually the question is not very clear. If you want to change your email service provider, then you just have to signup at another email service. ANd to Login, you just have to visit their site , enter username and password. Thats it. ^_^

    What email client are you using?

    In Thunderbird, right-click any of the accounts and select Settings..., click on the account you want to make the default and then click on the Account Actions button and select Set as Default from the resulting list.

    In Outlook, go to Tools - Account Settings, highlight the account and click on Set as Default.

    In Windows Live Mail, right-click on the account you want to use and select Set as default account from the context menu.

      Bruce hit it on the spot. What he listed is the easiest methods, and it is not just for Yahoo mail.
