Click on finish.

The internet accounts window returns, with your new email account appearing in the list. If you have just one email account in the list, you do not need to set a default. If you have previously had other mail accounts in the list, these will appear here as well, in this case click on the new mail account in the list, and click on the "Set as Default" button.

Finally click "Close" on the Accounts window. You are now ready to send and receive email through your new email account. It can take up to 24 hours for new domain names to propogate around the internet, so it is possible that the new email account will not work at first. Please be patient during this period.
