How to Set Up Your Email Account

Email has changed very little over the past 18 years of my engagement with the Interwebs. The question of how to set up email is a loaded question. There are several options when it comes to setting up your email. Many of the questions I receive are derived from confusion around how to set up a simple email account. Other questions I often get are ones such as, do I need pop3 or map? What if I use Gmail for my main email, can that be integrated with my new domain email? How do I add my domain email to my phone? My email keeps disappearing after I read it, what’s wrong? These are great questions and I’m more than happy to spend time with anyone who needs help.
