Hi There,

          Thanks so much for the links provided.  I am wondering if there are alternative or simpler approaches to setting up an email account which is independent of configuring an email client like Outlook.  For instance, does Yahoo and gmail offer simpler ways of setting up an email account?

Outlook.com is a replacement to hotmail.   It doesn't require you to configure Outlook the email application.    Out of all the web based email services i prefer Gmail.

Hello and Good Afternoon,

            Please accept my apology for taking so long to provide closure to this post.  I had several things within my professional and personal life which have side tracked me lately.  

             Upon review of the links provided and your suggestions, I have decided to recommend Gmail to my friend at work.  I like it primarily because of its simplicity.  In other words, there is not any email client like Microsoft Outlook which requires complicated configuration.  The steps contained within the link http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Gmail-Account are easy to understand and follow.  Besides, I have another friend who is using Gmail without hassles of sending and receiving emails.  

              Thank you so much once again for the awesome feedback given to this post.  Your feedback was certainly instrumental in helping me to help my friend at work.  You gave to me exactly what I was looking for : - )

No problem on late replies, just glad we could figure a solution.

Gmail is a great service.   I use it along with other mail services.   If you decide to use an email application like Outlook or Thunderbird,  Gmail will synch with those applications easily.
