[perfectpullquote align=”right” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”18″]Just how hard can it be to get new email addresses and make them work? It can take a bit of figuring out but its not that hard at all[/perfectpullquote] If you already have a domain name and hosting account set up then you have to start thinking about getting email accounts and names which are relevant to your new business, such as,, etc

So, just go back to your hosting account. There will usually be a facility for adding on email accounts. it will be in c/panel, details of which will have been sent to you when you first registered for hosting. it will be something like add/manage email. Go into that,and follow the instructions through. It is really straightforward.You will need to put a password in, so don’t forget to keep a note of that for later, click create and its a new email name. So you could have,, etc.

There are a couple of other steps you need to take to make sure that you can pick up the emails from your main email account. I recommend that you have a proper email account, one that you pay for rather than a hotmail or gmail account. I have one main one now and I forward everything to that. It means that I can pick up my emails wherever I am, internet access permitting!

While you are still in the hosting account, go back into the mail manager where you added your new email, click on forwarders, and again follow it through, put the name of the new email you wish to forward and the email address (the main one) you want to forward it to,click add and there you are,nearly done.

I use Microsoft Outlook but the following is very similar in outlook express

Before starting:
