How to Get Messenger in Yahoo Mail

Yahoo! Mail is a free, user-friendly email service that also has built-in access to your Yahoo! Messenger instant messaging account. Both mail and messenger use the same user names and passwords, making it simple to instant message your contacts directly through your email inbox. By using the newest version of Yahoo! Mail, you can multitask by emailing and instant messaging simultaneously.
