    Not sure if this is the right sub-forum for this, although I'll give it a shot.

    I'm setting up my own business and have bought the domain through godaddy.

    What's the process now for getting an @godaddydomain.com.au email? Ideally through Outlook.

    I had just assumed I would buy office 365 and set up a new email in outlook with the @godaddydomain.com.au suffix..... but is there a step I am missing?

    Do I have to add on email hosting to the godaddy plan thing or is that inbuilt when you buy office 365?

    Thanks all.

    You can use the $5 one for Exchange Online only. This is where your email will be hosted.

    https://products.office.com/en-au/exchange/exchange-online?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

    If you're buying Office outright, then you don't need to go for any higher plans. If you don't already have Office (which includes Outlook) you only have two options. Buy it outright, or go with the $17 plan.

    Otherwise you can just use the "web based" Outlook, which comes with the $5.50 plan above.

    You don't need to pay GoDaddy for anything, apart from the initlal domain registration fee.

    Oh I should have mentioned I want and need the desktop versions of word, excel etc. too sadly.

    Can't seem to escape the ecosystem even if I try.

    Yep, that's the answer I was looking for as I don't currently have Office at all for the business, so looks like the $17.20/month plan is the go-er.

    Thanks mate.
