With most web hosting packages you will receive a certain number of email accounts or boxes.
Even if you do not have a site yet, you can still secure a domain name and use the
domain name for your email by having an email only account with the host company.

Domain-based email addresses for you and your employees provide a professionalism that
is not present with free email accounts such as Yahoo or AOL.

Once you’ve chosen your email addresses and set them up with your
domain’s hosting company, you will need to add them to an email program
such as Microsoft Outlook in order to check and organize your email.

Follow the steps below to add an account to Outlook.
Launch Outlook Select “Tools” from the Menu bar.
Select “Email Accounts” from the Tools menu.
The Email Accounts Wizard will appear.
