How do we create that email account?  We go to our cpanel that will come with the hosted account and type in the name and save it.

Any emails sent will go to this email account. 

There should also be email reader included in the cpanel where you can open and read your emails.  If you have something like Outlook, you can set it up to download the emails so you can read them on your computer at your leasure as well as send from your own computer.
