Hi Smithy,

If you buy a domain from Yola, we can assist you with email setup. If you a buy a domain from another registrar they will be able to assist you with this.

However, email setup is not available for free subdomains. The reason for this is that you do not have access to the DNS management you need to create your CNAME and MX (mail exchange) records if you are using a subdomain.

This type of email address or the type you're looking for might be something we can provide in future, but for now you need a bought domain if you want to set up email for your site.

The email address will no longer work if the domain is not renewed because the settings on the domain won't be active anymore.

Hi Christel,

When you buy a domain name from Yola we provide you with full DNS management, which includes the ability to set up email addresses linked to your domain. You can do this with the email service of your choice. We recommend Google Apps as a really easy to use option and you can have up to 50 email addresses with a free account!

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 - http://www.yola.com/tutorials/creatin...

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Google Apps are the way to go, in my opinion. You can have an email address like, "me @ mydomain.com" along with as many variations (called "nicknames" in Google) as you like. Examples of nicknames would be "info @ mydomain.com", "sales @ mydomain.com," etc. You can either read the mail on the google server or have it sent to your email program on your computer. Very easy to set up too.
