How to Create a Telus Email

by Faizah Imani

Telus provides phone, Internet, and web hosting solutions to USA businesses of all sizes. When you have an account through Telus, you are allowed at least one email account, perhaps more, depending on your product subscription. You can create and send Telus email messages when you are away from your home computer by using the Telus "Webmail" tool. You can also create Telus email directly from a computer email program, such as Outlook Express.
