Hello,

We have a tutorial explaining the steps to setting up your email address with Google Apps or Windows Live, please click on this link: Creating email addresses with your domain bought from Yola. Windows Live will have you generate an MX Record, whereas Google Apps will have you generate the CNAME. If you and go through the setup for either Google Apps or Windows Live and have any troubles please let us know.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Hello,

With Windows live you need to add an MX record, not a CNAME
In the above instructions Emmy gave you it shows you how to add an MX record to your Yola bought domain. You simply need to do this to get your email set up.

I hope this helps.
