Your new email address

Before you create an email address at mail.com, here are a few things to consider:

user name checkmark

User name

Do you plan to use your new email address for personal or work correspondence? Make sure to register a user name that reflects this intention. Your nickname might be fine for family or friends, but your first and last name or the name of your business is probably better when you set up an email account for professional purposes.

envelope mail domain

Domain name

Running a business? You might pick consultant.com, engineer.com or one of our many professional domain names. What’s your hobby? Maybe artlover.com or bikerider.com is right for you. With more than 200 domains, mail.com is sure to have one that suits you. Together, your user name and email domain form a unique email ID that sets you apart from the crowd.

Password

Remember that the length of a password determines its strength, so your password should have at least eight characters and contain both upper- and lowercase letters as well as numbers and symbols. A strong password is essential to protect the important data in your inbox – so don’t choose a password that’s easy to guess like your own name or birthday.

FAQs: Creating email accounts

How many email addresses can I create?

With mail.com, you can have up to 10 email addresses in a single account. This allows you to have separate email addresses for different types of correspondence.

As you know, you register a new email address when you set up an email account. But you can also create up to nine additional email addresses linked to your mail.com account, called “alias addresses.” Simply log in to your account and go to E-mail Settings > Alias Addresses, where you can register any available combination of name and domain name. Emails sent to your alias addresses will automatically arrive in your account inbox, and you can set any of them as your sender address. 

What does mail.com do with the contact information I provide?

When you create your free email account, we ask you to fill in a contact cell phone number or email address. This is for our password recovery process: If you forget your password we can send you a secure text message or email to reset it. The personal data you provide during the email sign-up process remains confidential – mail.com will not share it with anyone else. We are not in the business of selling personal data.

Is there a mail.com mobile app I can use with my new account?

Yes, there is! mail.com offers free apps for both iOS and Android devices. Simply download the correct app for your device and get started. Both mail.com apps are intuitive and easy to use. Once you have downloaded the app, it will take you through the set-up process and get you connected to your mail.com account in no time.
