A domain email looks like this:
Your emails are hosted by your web hosting service and usually you would have to access clunky backend mail portals like Roundcube or Horde to access your email. However, since most of us have a Gmail account, we would recommend that you use Gmail to send and receive emails. Here is a guide on setting up your Gmail account to send and receive emails.
