I already have a yahoo.co.uk account but would like to make a new one for my mum. When I go to the Yahoo page where you can create a new account, I have put in her name and surname. It then wants me to enter the Yahoo details that I want to use - I've put in the name that my mum wants me to create (ie. [email protected]), but then I get a message up saying, 'You can only use letters, numbers, full stops (‘.’) and underscores (‘_’) in your username' - does anybody know why this is happening. Further down the page it goes on to ask for a password and mobile phone number, but because of the previous problem I have not got this far. Any suggestions as to how to get around this? Thank you.

Ok, I have an old gmail account, so am now looking at setting her up one of those instead - however, another hiccup - when I launch gmail, my account automatically comes up on the page and loads with old emails, etc. I can't see how to sign out of my account to create a new one? Thank you.

Think I have found out how to do it, I was trying to go through gmail, but am now going through google.

click your picture (top right) then sign out

gmail not only has better spam detection/prevention, but a nicer interface, and better security (including 2fa https://www.google.com/landing/2step/)

Gmail scans your emails to target ads (and seriously **** me off doing that) there's one called zoho or just simply outlook.com though it's got quite a small storage space compared to the rest but can't imagine it causing problems. What kind of phone OS do they have? Might help make the decision a little easier
