    Greetings fellow webpage designers,

    I wasn't sure which forum would be correct for this topic so I hope I didn't make an error by posting it here.

    My question:
    I own a domain name that I want to use solely for an email address from everyone.net (i.e. email@mydomain.com). Do I have to have that domain name on a host server to use it for email from everyone.net? Or is there another way so I don't have to pay a monthly hosting fee to have a personalized email address?

    Thank you,
    Christy D

    Nope.. EveryOne.net is a REMOTELY hosted service which means everything happens on their servers. So you don't need a host.

    But you will need a host that will change your MX settings for you. Most free hosts I've seen won't do this.

    If you register at Register.com you can change mx details yourself.

    I use Everyone.net on my site and you have to update your DNS file to get it working.
