Here are top two reasons why you should not be using free email service:
- They do not respect your privacy. How do you think Gmail knows which advertisement to show in your email? They read all your emails!
- Your business do not look professional when using a your.name@GMAIL.com address. Many companies and individuals pay lesser attention to the emails they receive from free email addresses. These emails are easily be associated with spam. Due to this, there is a great possibility that companies and individuals you are sending emails to will miss very important emails sent to them. Therefore it is highly recommended that you have a personal email account in your own domain (Ex. firstname.lastname@example.org). It is also very affordable these days (see suggested hosting companies below).
