    If you go to some variation of http://login.live.com/ you should see a link
    to "Sign up for an account". That link should not redirect you to a login
    page. If you can't seem to find the way, this should work:

    Free Yahoo accounts that are based in the US have webmail access only.

    To register for a second Hotmail or Live.com account, go to
    http://login.live.com and click on the link "Sign up for an account".

    Click Check Availability
    Enter a user password, reenter the password (next line where prompted)
    Fill in the rest of the fields(alternate email address or secret question, country, state, birth year)
    Enter the 8 special characters shown in the field named 'Characters:'
    Click 'I accept'
    A new page will load
    Click on 'Mail' (top in browser Window) - this will load your web interface email account in your browser
    Create a new email message to any email account
    Click Send
    A yellow prompt will appear at the top (we need to ask you to verify your account')

    wait 24 hrs)
