Yahoo is offering two free domain names Ymail.com and Rocketmail.com for registering email addresses. But why you may ask even i don”t know, why the heck any one wants a rocketmail or ymail address when you have Yahoo.com address. Ymail although makes sense, it may be an attempt at Gmail.com users. If this is the real strategy behind Ymail then Yahoo is really crazy. Yahoo mail has some nice features and i use it, but Gmail rocks, it has excellent features and simple easy to use navigation and those threaded conversations. Offering Ymail like Gmail doesn’t buy me or any one for that matter.
How to get that email address: First i went to Ymail.com but it is redirecting to login.yahoo.com page, after a little digging i found that you have to select your email domain when you actually register. Go to mail.yahoo.com and fill the signup page, at step no 2 select ymail or rocketmail. Now you have a ymail.com email address. Now say a big thanks to Yahoo and go back to Gmail. 🙂 Via Mashable
