How much of a stigma is there to use of a web-based email address?
dbrown 2 years ago
Whether the use of a web-based email in a business context gives an unprofessional impression was the topic of a casual debate with a few co-workers over lunch. We all agreed that the use of a hotmail or yahoo account in business would cause us to notice it in a negative way. However, the was no such agreement on gmail. While we all felt that it looks more professional to use a yourcompany.com email for business, there was a difference of opinion on gmail for some reason. For the most part we all felt that it wouldn't cause us to raise an eyebrow (at least not very high) if someone had a gmail addy on their business card. Are we out there on this? And really, why would gmail be ok while hotmail and yahoo would be viewed so negatively?
