Add user email accounts
As your business grows, your employees might need their own Microsoft 365 email addresses. Add a user in your account to set up a new email address.
This video is part of the How-To series for setting up email.
- Sign in to your Email & Office Dashboard (use your GoDaddy username and password).
- Select Add user. (If you previously deleted a user, you won't be able to use that credit to create a new account until the old one is completely removed, which can take up to a day.)
- Your next step depends on the amount and type of available users you have in your account:
- If you have multiple account types available, choose the Microsoft 365 account type you want to set up, and select Get started.
- If you have one type of account available, skip this step and continue.
- If you don't have any available users, buy a new Microsoft 365 account to add users.
- Choose the domain you want to use and select Continue. (To set up an email with an external domain, select A domain not in my GoDaddy account and follow the steps to set up your email on an external domain.)
Note: If you already have Workspace Email set up for your domain, you'll see an Existing Email notice. Select Continue and switch your domain's email service to Microsoft 365.
- On the Create new email account page, complete the following:
User info What to do Username Enter a name before the @ symbol. First name Enter the user's first name. Last name Enter the user's last name.

Send account info to Enter up to 5 email addresses where you'd like user account notifications sent.
