John from St. Petersberg, FL
Gmail

John bought a new domain name and wants to set up an email. How can he do it for free? Leo recommends going with Gmail. It's a great free service with excellent spam filtering. Microsoft's Outlook mail is also good. Then, you can tell your domain DNS listing to send an email that comes for you to that email service. In the settings for the domain name, there will be DNS settings and one will be for email. That's where you will input the forwarding address for your email. It's also called the MX setting. Google "Change MX Setting to your email provider" and you'll get step by step instructions.
