How to Create a Google Email

Email is a common means of communication. It is a fast and effective way to correspond. Internet-based email accounts give the added feature of being available to check your email from any location. You do not have to be at your home computer to check this type of email account. All you need is a computer with Internet access. One of the most popular ones to use is Google's email, which is known as Gmail.
