Set up a Free Email Account
It’s easy and free to set up a new email account. The best way to do this is to set up something called a webmail account. You can access this type of email account from any computer by logging into your account securely.
Webmail is convenient because you can access your emails from any device by logging in securely online. You are not tied to using just one computer. Webmail works on mobiles and tablets - Gmail and Outlook.com have their own free apps, or you can connect a webmail account to the built-in email app on a tablet or smartphone in a few simple steps.
Setting up a secure password
