Add user email accounts
As your business grows, your employees might need their own Microsoft 365 email addresses. Add a user and set up a new email address.
Required: In the Email & Office Dashboard, you need to set up any existing accounts as users before you can purchase new ones. To keep your existing accounts and buy new ones, go to GoDaddy's website. If you recently deleted a user, you might need to wait up to 1 day to use the credit.
- Sign in to your Email & Office Dashboard (use your GoDaddy username and password).
- Select Add user.
- Depending on the number and types of accounts you have, you’ll see different options:
- If you have multiple account types available: Select the Microsoft 365 account type you want to set up, and then Get started.
- If you have one account type available: Skip this step and then continue to step 4.
- If you don't have any available users: Buy a new Microsoft 365 plan.
- Select the domain you want to use, and then Continue.
- You'll see an Existing Email notice if you already have Workspace Email set up with your domain. Select Continue, then switch your domain's email service to Microsoft 365.
- On the Create new email account page, you’ll see either the Create single email or Create multiple emails page depending on your number of available accounts. Select the appropriate tab based on what's displayed in your Email & Office Dashboard, and then follow the steps:
