Introduction:
Before we do anything else we first need to create a new Gmail account. Of course if you already have a Gmail account that you want to use to house your work emails you can skip this first tutorial. We have chosen Gmail as the email provider to use for our walkthrough's because of the ease of transferring emails and because of Gmail's good reputation. You may use a different provider if you so choose but it the walkthroughs will not match up exactly.
