View Full Version : Professional email address?

03-05-2010, 08:12 AM
I've seen it said that a professional-looking email address should be used when querying/submitting. What does that mean?

I know that email addresses like Iamsocuteyoullbegladyoureppedme@yahoo.com should not be used. But is a respectable (first name, last name) account on gmail or yahoo OK?

Do you have a separate email account just for querying?

It just means not to have an e-mail like, hotchicksRus@whatever.com. Having a free service e-mail doesn't matter at all. :-)

I just have myname@gmail.com

It's an address I set up just for querying. I prefer to keep things separate. Also, that way I don't have a heart attack every time I have new mail.

i have a separate email account that i use for professional stuff.


that sort of thing is perfectally fine. also, despite what people will say, it really doesn't matter who you email provider is, so free emails are just fine.

@Kathleen42 I'll keep the anti-heart-attack suggestion in mind. I just laughed so hard when I read that.
