Rate this post

How to create an email address: Have you decided to open a new mailbox but are still undecided on which service to choose? I understand you, now there are so many “on the square” that it is really difficult to opt for one rather than the other.

How about if we try to clear our heads together? I would say to make a nice list with all the most important email services among those currently available on the market, analyze their characteristics and see in detail how to create an email address on them. Don’t worry, I will explain everything to you in great detail; you will see that you will be able to follow the procedures to create an e-mail address even if you are not particularly Internet and Computer savvy.

Such an overview should help you find the right solution for you. Are you there? Good. So let’s start immediately with the first proposal, free, like all those that will come later. Yes, because creating an email address is a procedure you can do without spending a cent. Are you ready to get started? Yup? Very well. Before starting I would like to wish you a good read.

Gmail

The first service I want to tell you about is Gmail which, as you almost certainly know, is the one offered by Google. The Google mailbox offers 15GB of online space for data storage and can be used freely in any context: directly from the browser, with a traditional mail client (eg. Outlook or Thunderbird) or from applications for smartphones and Tablet.

To create a Gmail address, all you have to do is connect to Gmail official site and click the button Create an account that you find located at the top right. You will be offered a form to fill in in detail with all your personal data: name, surname, date of birth, gender of belonging and the combination of username And password you want to use to log into your Google mailbox (your username will also be the initial part of your email address: name@gmail.com).

I recommend that you also enter a number of mobile phone or a secondary email address: you will need them to recover the password to access the account in case of loss, however this is optional information that you can also not provide. The choice is yours.

Once you have filled in all the required data, you will have to press the button Next step and then on the button I accept to emphasize Google’s conditions relating to the treatment of privacy and terms of service. Now you have to press the button Continue and go to Gmail to be redirected to the famous Google e-mail service and thus be able to access your newly created mailbox.

The first time you log in to Gmail, a short tutorial will show you how the Google email tabbed interface works, through which each incoming email will be automatically categorized in the appropriate tab of your email.

Also keep in mind that your having created a Gmail account means you can access all the online services and applications offered by this famous company, such as the productivity suite Google Drive, Google Calendar, Google Maps, YouTube etc. It also allows you to synchronize all the contacts and data of Android smartphones online.
