Email Setup

What is the average amount of time an Agent can go without checking their email? About four seconds. What can we say? We like to stay connected. You don't have to be an Agent to understand how email has become an integral part of modern life. Let us help you create an account and show you how to use it.

Do I get to chose the email application?
Yes, we know how to install MS Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Opera, iScribe - the list goes on and on. We know how to install them all. You will need to purchase the software if you want to use one of the retail email clients (MS Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.).

Will Geek Squad install a work-related account as well as a personal email?
Work and play. We do them both. Although personally we tend to work our lives away.

What kind of information will I need to set up email on my computer?
In order to do the setup, we’ll need some settings from your email provider. We can try to locate the settings online for the common providers like Gmail and Yahoo!, but if your email account is through a personal website or company, we'll need you to ask your hosting company or IT department for the setting. You will also need to know your password. You will be asked to type it in yourself so we will not have any of your sensitive personal data.
