How to create an email account with Google?
Step 1: Set your web browser's location address to www.google.com and once the Google page loads, click on the Gmail link at the top section.
Step 2: Click on the "Create an account" button to get started. A new page will load where you can start creating a new account.
You can also use this page to login once you already have an account later on.
Step 3: A page will load where you can provide the details of your new account.
The "Desired Login Name" appended with "gmail.com", in this example I'm using "email@example.com", will be your new email address. Press the "check availability!" button to check if this address is still available, if not, then you will have to choose something else.
Unlike the home address where more than one person can have the same address, an email address is unique to each individual. There's no stopping you from sharing your account with someone else though but that might not be a very good idea.
You'll notice that the form is really easy to fill-up, however, in case you need to know more details about an item, you can click on the "Learn more" link that you can find next to the item you're interested in.
Step 4: Finally click on the "I accept. Create my account." button to continue. You should then see the "Congratulations" page showing that you've successfully created your new account. In this example, you can then use "jsmith40511" as your Google mail (Gmail) to login to your account.
You can then tell your friends of your new email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope this helps. Cheers!
