How to set up email for new domain NOT using Office365 Email

Hi Everyone,

I bought a new domain and want to set up email but not using Office365 as I am a Linux user.

Can I set up the email account in GoDaddy webmail and not use Office365 at all?

Even so the instructions with settings did not work on my iPhone.


Many thanks.

Hi @saintmichele7. I'm guessing that you got an Office 365 account for free when you registered your domain. You're not obligated to use that service if you don't want to. (I'd recommend turning off automatic renewal for it if you aren't going to use it, though.) If you can post the domain name and specifically what email service you're trying to use with the domain, someone here may be able to suggest why it's not working for you. Good luck!
