I've seen several sites where they are using a Gmail account for their email rather than creating an account on their domain.
Which do you use: firstname.lastname@example.org or you@Gmail.com?
Which do you think is better?
I think it's more professional and sensible to use the website's domain for website-related email. Especially if you're sending email, it won't be instantly clear that you're affiliated with the website until you mention it in the email. It's tacky.
I simply forward my website mail to my Gmail inbox and have it automatically filtered and labeled.
I think so too Mahz. I wondered if I was missing something...
I wonder if the people doing this don't really know how to set up emails on their domain or something :)
What do you think are goo prefixes for the main contact email address for a site? Webmaster isn't necessarily the person you're contacting. Info@domain.com?
Another vote for domain from me.
What happens if gmail goes bust, starts charging or whatever. At least with your own domain, you have full control.
I use Gmail, but have it set up to send mail as if it was coming from my domains.
I use my domain as email account but it uses Google apps so I never actually host the mail server on my side
Gmail is broken so I use email accounts on my own domain. If Gmail worked properly I could configure it so as to use it as the email service for my domain (so no one would know it was Gmail).
This is joy. according to me I've seen several sites where they are using a Gmail account for their email rather than creating an account on their domain.
I only ever use my GMail account for testing HTML emails.
