Nowadays if you do not have an email address you do not exist. Think, you can not even sign up for online services that are now available to everyone, like Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. This means that there are no more excuses: even if you have entered the world of Internet very recently – perhaps today – you must absolutely open one, regardless of your age and the type of activity you do. It is therefore essential to create an email address, this does not make it rainy.
But how long does it take? How much do you pay? Wait. If you follow the simple instructions I am about to give you, you will find that the procedure to create an email address is not only 100% free but it is also very easy to carry out. Yes, even for you who are at the very first arms with the world of Internet, you have my word.

I am sure that in the end you will be able to tell you more than satisfied and that in case of need you will also be ready and willing to explain to your needy friends to receive a similar tip how to proceed. So, are you ready to get to work?
Let’s start by saying that there is no better e-mail service than others in an absolute sense, it is up to you to choose the one that seems best suited to your needs among those I am about to advise you.
Now all work directly from the browser, without requiring complicated configurations, have applications for access from smartphones and tablets and offer several GB of space for storing messages and attachments. All this of course does not exclude the possibility of downloading emails locally through “traditional” programs such as Outlook and Apple Mail, but now let’s not go too far into these considerations, let’s move on to action.
The first service to create an email address that I want to recommend is Gmail. It is one of the most used email services in the world. It is completely free and offers 15GB of data storage space. Creating an email address with Gmail you get not only the ability to conveniently manage the mail from any platform (Web, desktop, smartphone and tablet), but also access to all Google services: YouTube, Maps, Google Drive and via on.
To create an email address with Gmail, the first thing you need to do is click here so that you can immediately connect to the main web page of the famous e-mail box. Then presses the blue button Create an account that is placed at the top right.
In the new Web page that will open, fill in the form visible on the screen. The information you must provide is the name, surname, user name (
email@example.com) and password to be used to access Gmail, date of birth and gender. I suggest you also fill in the optional fields or those related to the mobile number and the secondary email address to be used to recover the password to access Gmail in case you had to lose and do not remember.
After completing the form, copy the verification code in the field located at the bottom of the page under the text Type the text, indicate your country using the appropriate drop-down menu located under the Country option and then presses the blue button Next step.
Now scroll the new screen overlaying the previous one and then click the blue Accept button to tell Google that you agree and accept the terms of service.
At this point I can not do anything but say: congratulations, you finally managed to complete all the procedure to create email address with Gmail. To immediately access your new mailbox click on the Continue button and go to Gmail that is shown to you on the screen.
In the new Web page that will open you will first be shown a simple guide indicating all the features and basic services offered by Gmail after which you can log in and start using your new mailbox.
Later, to access Gmail from any computer, all you need to do is open your web browser and visit mail.google.com. You will find messages, contacts and attachments perfectly synchronized from any location.
If you want to configure and use Gmail in a traditional mail client, click here and follow the instructions on the web page displayed.
Do you want to use Gmail from your smartphone or tablet? Well, in this case I suggest you download and install the official app. If you have a smartphone or Android tablet, you can download the official application of Gmail by tapping here directly from your device and if you have an iPhone or an iPad you can download the official Gmail app by tap here from the device.
Now let’s move on to Outlook.com, the Microsoft home email service that has replaced Hotmail and Live Mail. The e-mail application included in the Office package is completely free and offers 15GB of online storage for messages and attachments. The addresses of Outlook.com can have three different suffixes, chosen by the user, and give access to all the online services of Microsoft home, such as OneDrive and all the Office applications online.
To create an email address with Outlook.com, the first thing you need to do is click here so that you can immediately connect to the appropriate Microsoft Web page through which you can create a new email address. Done this presses on the link Try Outlook.com that is located in the upper right corner.
Once this is done, you will be redirected to the Microsoft services subscription form. Then fill in the fields related to your personal data by typing name, surname, date of birth, etc. then fill in the field below the Username entry indicating the initial part of the Outlook e-mail address you want to create and use. Depending on what are your preferences you can then choose, through the appropriate drop-down menu, an Outlook account such as @ outlook.in, @outlook.com and possibly also @ hotmail.com.
Then enter the rest of the required information (password, phone number, etc.) and check the security code at the bottom of the page. Also, remember to provide an alternative e-mail address to the one you are about to create by filling in the Alternate e-mail address field.
If you’re not interested in receiving promotional emails from Microsoft, make sure that the box next to the option I want to receive emails with promotional offers from Microsoft. Registration can be canceled at any time, it’s not ticked.
To complete the whole procedure by which to create an email address with Outlook.com, click on the blue Create account button that is located at the bottom of the page.
At this point I can not do anything but compliment you, you finally managed to complete the procedure to create email address with Outlook.com. In confirmation of what you will be shown a control panel of your profile through which to modify and add information related to you. To access the Outlook e-mail mailbox, presses the option Services and subscriptions located at the top and then click on the option Use Outlook.com free of charge under the entry Outlook.com of the new Web page that is shown to you.
You can then access Outlook.com from any computer by simply launching the web browser, by visiting https://outlook.live.com/owa/ and pressing the Login button, take the top right. You will find messages, contacts and attachments perfectly synchronized from any location.

If instead, you have a Windows Phone device I have good news to give you: you do not have to download anything, the app to take advantage of Outlook.com is already available.
Another service thanks to which you can create email address that I suggest you take seriously into consideration is Yahoo! Mail, the e-mail service that – as easily understood – is offered by Yahoo !. This service offers 1TB of space for storing messages and attachments and is very simple to use. Registration, which requires confirmation via SMS or phone call on the mobile, also gives access to all the online services of Yahoo !, such as Flickr and Answers.
To create an email address with Yahoo! Mail The first thing you need to do is click here so that you can immediately connect to the main web page of the service. Once you’ve seen the service home page, type the username you want to use for your new inbox in the Choose the username visible at the center of the screen, and then click the purple Go button next to the side.
In the new Web page that at this point you are shown fill out the form visible on the screen taking care to type your name, your last name, the password to associate with your email address, your date of birth and your gender. If necessary, type again the initial part of the e-mail address you want to create by entering the appropriate field, the suffix will be of the type @ yahoo.com. Also, indicate your mobile number that will be used by Yahoo! to send you the data necessary to access your account again in case you lose or forget your login credentials. Then presses the Continue button.
At this point, click on the button Send a code via SMS and wait for a text message from Yahoo! to the telephone number previously indicated. The SMS sent to you contains a verification code which you will need to insert in the Code box displayed on the screen. As an alternative to the SMS, you can receive a call which will show you the code to be provided to Yahoo! simply by clicking on the Call me with a code option.
After entering the code, you will be redirected to your brand new inbox and you will be able to start using all the features instantly.

If you have an Apple device (iPhone / iPad) or a Mac, you can also create an email address on iCloud, the Apple email service that offers 5GB of online space (via iCloud Drive). The procedure to follow is very simple.
All you have to do is click here to connect to the main page of the iCloud.com portal, click on the entry Do not have an Apple ID? Create your own right away. and fill out the form that appears with all your personal information.
