Create your Office 365 email address
Step 1 of the Set up my Office 365 account series.
Set up your Office 365 email account and create your email address in the Email & Office dashboard.
- Sign in to your Email & Office dashboard (enter your GoDaddy username and password).
- If this is your first Office 365 email address, pick the domain you want to use for your email address. If you have an existing Office 365 email address, click Add user then pick the domain you want to use.
- In the Create new email account form, you create your username. Be creative, this is the email address people see and use to send you emails. Avoid using numbers or special characters, they're harder for people to remember and write. (Ex: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
- Next you'll need to fill out the Create new email account form. Start by entering your Username, this username is also the name of your email address.
- Enter your First name and Last name.
- Under Link domains?, select the Do not share option. If this is your first email domain, you won't see this option. (Linking domains allows users to share contacts and files. It is useful if the domains are a part of one business.)
- Select Yes to assign admin permissions to this account. (If this is your first email account, Yes will be preselected.)
- Click Create my own password then enter a new password in the Create a password and Confirm password fields. (It's important to create an email password that is different than your GoDaddy password.)
Note: If you are creating an email address for another user, select Use a temporary password. This let's the other person create their own password.
- Enter your email address in the Send account info to field and click Create.
- When your email address is ready, you’ll receive an email creation confirmation at the email address you provided in the previous step.
It takes a few minutes, or more, to set up an email address. Once you receive your confirmation email or text, you can go to the next step and set up your recovery email address.
