Hello rabi,

You have many choices and options in setting up email in Yola.

If you simply wish for people to contact you via email you can do this by posting your email address directly on your page and you can either make this a text link or simply as is. This is not recommended as it also allows for spamming robots to harvest this from your site. A second option si to use something like the recaptcha facility http://recaptcha.net/learnmore.html which partially disguises your email address and requires human intervention to be able to access it.
The third option for direct mailing is to use a mailing form (eg: Jotform, Wufoo, FormAssembly). The first two are available here as form widgets on the sidebar of the builder and the third is : http://jotform.com Basically a user fills out the form and then this is sent to your email address or another access point. With this method your email isn't made public.

If you wish to set up a a mail facility whereby users can subscribe to an email address with your domain name this is also easily achieved.
This requires you to have your own domain, rather than a sub-domain. ie: mysite.com rather than mysite.yolasite.com. Domains are easily purchased here on Yola and cost $19.95 per year. You can also buy a domain independently from other providers and then point your domain name to the Yola servers. tutorials are provided by Yola.for this outcome.

Setting up your mail domain is well documented in a Tutorial here on Yola.

All the Tutorials are well listed here:

Hi there rabi,

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!

Peter is right - We have a tutorial explaining the steps to setting up your email address with Google Apps or Windows Live, please click on this link for the specific tutorial: Creating email addresses with your domain bought from Yola .

If you have any further questions, or if we can be of more assistance, please let us know.
