Yahoo messanger came way after the e-mail accounts were provided. The reason yahoo messanger was popular in Iran was because everyone already had yahoo mail accounts. It was only natural to get the same messanger.

Speed was the only reason behind yahoo usage in Iran. I clearly remember I got my family and relatives to get hotmail and once they did, they couldn't use it as much as yahoo because it was so slow.
