Microsoft 365 from GoDaddy Help

Create my Microsoft 365 email address


Step 1 of the Set up my Microsoft 365 account series.

In just a few steps, we'll get your email up and running. First, let's create your email address in the Email & Office Dashboard.

  1. Sign in to your Email & Office Dashboard (use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. If you already have an existing Microsoft 365 email address from GoDaddy, select Add user. If this is your first Microsoft 365 email address, continue to the next step.
    select add user
  3. Select the domain you want to use for your email, and then select Continue.
    select your domain
  4. Enter a Username for your email address.

    Example: Use your name like jane@coolexample.com or jpointsman@coolexample.com. Avoid using numbers or special characters, since they're harder for people to remember.

    enter a name for your email address
  5. Enter your First name and Last name.
    enter a first name and last name
  6. In the Link domains menu, select Do not share. If this is your first email with this domain name, you won’t see this option.

    Note: Linking domains allows users to share contacts and files, like if the domains are part of one business.

  7. To assign admin permissions to the account, select Yes. Or, if you already have an email account, choose whether the new email is for you or someone else.
    select yes or no to grant admin permissions
  8. Choose an option for the password:
    • If the account’s for another user: Select Use a temporary password so the user can change it later.
    • If the account’s for you: Under Create a password, enter a password. Make sure it's different than your GoDaddy account. If you already have an email account, you need to select Create my own password first.
    choose password
  9. Under Send account info to, enter the email address where we’ll send the account details.
    enter email address to share account details
  10. Select Create.

Congrats, you created your first email!

When your Microsoft 365 email address is ready, we’ll send a confirmation to the email address you provided in step 9. If you don't receive it right away, don't worry. It could take a few minutes.

After you receive your confirmation email, go to the next step where we’ll add your recovery email address. Just a few more steps to go.
