What you need: A computer with Internet access

Step 1. Choose a web-based e-mail service that offers free e-mail services, for example, Webmail at www.webmail.co.za or Hotmail at www.hotmail.com or Yahoo at www.yahoo.com.

Step 2. Go to one of the above websites and there will be an option for you to register or sign up for a free e-mail address. Click on the sign-up or register button.

Step 3. Fill in the registration form that appears on screen.You will need a login name. It can be your real name or a nickname. Sometimes you can’t get your first choice, so think of a second choice name too. All e-mail names must be different on the Internet.

You will be asked to enter a password. This is needed to ensure that no-one else can use your e-mail account. You will use your login name and your password each time you access your e-mail. Pick a password that you will remember and store it in your cellphone or diary just in case you forget. Here are two examples of e-mail addresses: dudu1@webmail.co.za and shaditwala@yahoo.com.
