Can I change my Yahoo! ID?

Your ID (yourname@yahoo.com) is permanently connected to your Yahoo! Account.
If you delete it, you will lose everything connected to it.
You can change your name, password, secret question, home/work/school address, and country in your account information.


You cannot change your Yahoo! ID except by opening a new account, but you can add up to six (6) aliases to your current ID as part of the same account. An alias consists of a name and some information that you show in a profile to other members. When you log in to Yahoo!, you can choose any of your aliases.

To create a new alias, go to the Yahoo! Member Directory (http://members.yahoo.com/). Make sure you are signed in, then click "My Profiles." The next page will list your ID and any profiles that you have already created. To make a new profile, click the "Create New Public Profile" button near the top.

The only required field is the actual name—all other information is optional. You should not reveal any information on your profile that you wouldn't want a complete stranger to know (such as your phone number or address).

When you're done, use the "Create Profile" button. This will take you back to your profile list, with your new name added. Make sure to click the "Finished Editing" link to save your changes.

If you decide to re-register and create a new ID, you will need to reset all of your preferences for My Yahoo! and other personalized Yahoo! services.

Information between separate accounts cannot be merged or exchanged.

if you want to change the address of your existing hotmail account, then you can’t change the existing hotmail address, you can only edit the profile of your e-mail address, also you can edit your account settings like password changing, can change your member information, can also edit as many things but not the e-mail address itself because you are currently login in a e-mail id, then you can't change it except by opening a new account .

Woh,

I am not an IT expert and really get puzzled with these things.

Anyway, might be a good interaction for IT lovers.

You can export and import Hotmail contact, however, I have never used Yahoo so don't know how does it work. They are rival, I am sure yahoo must have similar features.

http://help.yahoo.com>>>Yahoo! Addressbook >>>> Address Book >>> Impexp :


How do I transfer address book data from one Yahoo! account to another?

If you use Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP or NT, you can transfer your address book from one Yahoo! account to another using the Import/Export feature.

First, export your address book as a Comma Separated Value (.CSV) file:

Click "Import/Export" in the upper-right corner of your Address Book. In the Export section, click the "Export Now" button next to the phrase "Yahoo! CSV:."
When prompted, specify a convenient location and name for your file in the "Save As" dialog box.
Your address book data is now saved as a standard .CSV file.

Do you want to make any changes to it? You can open this file in programs like Microsoft Excel to edit the information – just don't change the field names in the first row. And if you do this, remember to save the revised file as a .CSV file, not a .XLS (Excel) file. Your data must be saved as a .CSV file to be re-imported to another account.

Now, import your info into a different Yahoo! Mail account:

Sign out of the first account.
Sign into the other Yahoo! account.
Click "Import/Export" in the upper-right corner of your Address Book.
In the Import section, select "Yahoo!(.CSV file)" from the pull-down menu.
Click "Browse" to locate the .CSV file you just revised or exported.
Highlight the file and click "Import Now."
