How To Create An Email Account

Updated on July 26, 2011

Creating an email account is simple. First, choose an email service that you prefer (major ones include Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail, etc). Next, decide what screen name you wish to have. This will act as both your login name and your email address name (ex. yournamehere@yahoo.com). If the name is taken, try a variation of the name, or add numbers, spaces or hyphens in it. After you have chosen a name, you will have to create a password and a security question/answer. Make sure to choose a password that you'll be able to remember, but will be difficult for others to guess (as a warning for those making an account for the first time, NEVER give out your password, as there are many scam and phishing sites that will undoubtebly try to steal your information) . The final step is to fill out your personal information and activate your account. Once this is completed, you will be able to use your email to send and receive messages, add addresses and phone numbers into your contact book, use your calendar, and much more.

      I know I am not computer savvy, but I can't figure out how to set up an additional email account in gmail since I already have one account. Would someone be so kind as to walk me through it step by step? Thanks, appreciate it.

      Janet: To make an additional one, you just need to fill out your information again and choose a new username. You will have to give a different cell phone number to obtain the verification PIN, as they will require a new one for each account that is created. Hope that helps.

      is it possible to create your own address like let's say you put example1234@ something can you change the last part after the @ and create your own ?

      vann: I may be wrong, but unless you have your own hosted domain, you can't create your own email extension.

      Is the gmail the same as email

      Holly: I assume you mean sending an email? Once you have an account, you can compose a new message and add the email address (of the person you want it sent to) in the first column (next to "To:"). Then just click send and you'll be good to go.

      arrthit: Yes, it is the same as email, however, Gmail allows you to do numerous other tasks, such as creating spreadsheets or uploading documents.

      ajrocks: It's really up to you which service you're more comfortable with. Both Yahoo Mail and Gmail offer standard messaging options, address books for your contacts, and personal calendars. However, having a Google account also allows you to create and share documents with contacts, earn Google ad revenue for ads you run on your personal web domain, and much more.

      yc: Are you trying to set up an account, or log into one? If you're trying to set one up and still get an error message, you may need to choose a stronger password that will be accepted by the service, or the server may be experiencing some temporary glitches. If you're trying to log into your existing account, you may need to do a password retrieval.
