    Can someone explain what a google email is please?

    Hi
    Sorry to be so dopey.
    My son likes to put little videos on to you tube. Up till now he has signed in under my email but tonight it says you can no longer do that and that he needs to sign in under a google account.
    Not really sure what this is....is it an email i set up...through google...will i have to sign into google everytime i want to look at any emails on this account. Seems a bit long winded to me. The old way worked fine.

    the old way is best left gone, the new way, scans for viruses, stores all your email and contacts, and cant lose them, as they are not on your computer, the best spam filtering system and lots of other up sides too

    Like the idea of scanning...thanks repped you both.

    The thing with google mail aswell you can use fo ex [email protected] and [email protected] and they will both go into the same inbox.

    So say you have already signed upto a site ie tesco at the mo for the 15% off dvds/blu rays/games it will not let you use the account again for the voucher, but if you sign up again you can still use the same email account ie the gmail part of the email.

    Plus if you use hotail/msn it will let you add the gmail account to that so if you get a email on the gmail it will pop up in the hotmail account aswell if you wish/ it will all say aswell if you have messenger open.

    Did you try it? I don't think I explained it too well.

    You basically put your e-mail address, a plus sign (+), any combination of numbers and/or letters and then either @gmail.com or @googlemail.com.

    I.e. myemailaddress+fgjjhgdfhj321@gmail.com
