New to this but I'd like to register a domain name (with WHOIS privacy) and set it up so that whatever comes before the "@", the email is forwarded to my ISP email address.

Can I make it look like replies come from my domain rather than the ISP email account?

Am I right in thinking that all I need is a domain name and not the option where they charge about £1 per month to store email and give webmail access?

Don't mind if the domain is co.uk, .net or .com (prefer latter).

Where can I get all this for a fair price and minimal hassle? How about netfirms.com?

You would need the domain name and a hosting with an email server, unless you've got a static IP address and want to leave your PC on 24/7 and run your own server.

You can forward all incoming emails to the email account your ISP provides (registrars such as 123-reg provide this service for free).

When setting up your email software with the Internet provider's email settings simply specify your new email address, instead of the one that your ISP assigned you.
Please note that some ISPs require you to notify/register your custom email address with them (ie: BT Business Broadband), if you want to use a custom email address with their email servers. This is to keep outgoing spam to a minimum.

Emails sent to your domain name will appear in your normal ISP inbox and emails you send out through your ISP's email system will display your custom email address.

If you would prefer to use a webmail service, I suggest signing up for GMail, as it allows it's users to set a custom from address.

Hope this helps.

Its very simple to do this by setting the "From" e-mail address with in most software such as outlook etc as suggested by Summoner.

May I also suggest that you take a look at the new Googlemail for business offering, its somthing new that Google are just offering to the UK market at the moment and there are some deals to be had.

Let me just say that in no way am I linked to Google but I am just a happy customer.

For years I have been helping with the family business to support servers for file sharing and e-mail, but we looked to outsource this purly due to the cost of Spam filters, anti virus software, storage costs etc etc, however google offer all of these services with a huge online storage.

Its well worth a look !

That will just cause it to show that to the human sitting in front of the computer, if anyone hits reply then the address in the subject line will be your ISP's e-mail.
