Setting up free professional email?

6 Replies

This may be slightly out there, but I am trying to set up a customer email for my new business.  I already have a domain name registered, and was looking to see if there were free email applications.  Looks like gmail and the like have all moved to a pay service.  What does everyone use for setting up their business email?  Do I have to resolve for paying someone for the service?  I'm not looking to just have a address or something like that.  I want to leverage my personal domain.

Appreciate any feedback!

Thanks for the feedback Al.  Appreciate it!

If you have a domain name registered. You probably have your website hosted somewhere.

Every host provider allows you to many e-mail ids as you like.

You can use pretty much any provider to host your e-mail. Unless you host it yourself, you are going to have to pay. I use West Host for hosting my e-mail and website and it's something like $5-$10/month. I used to use HostGator but I didn't like their sneakery. Also, using a service like this allows you to host your website at the same time.

Here's a quick flow of how the Internets work for this:

  • Buy your domain name (GoDaddy or someone less evil)
  • Select your hosting provider (GoDaddy, HostGator or someone less evil)
  • Point your DNS from GoDaddy to HostGator
  • Log into HostGator and create your e-mail accounts
  • Use whatever you want to check them (Outlook, Thunderbird, Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
I use Their service is just like Google, but free.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.  I will be looking into this!  Like the tip.
