– Here you are! you are just a step away from creating a webmail. Enter your desired username in the option provided. Example, ‘Support’ and the outcome would be firstname.lastname@example.org. Enter your desired password in the field specified. Use the password indicator as a guide to create a strong password. Alternatively, you can use the password generator button to generate a strong password for email accounts.
