@outlook.com or @gmail.com?
I need a new email.
No obscure mails pls, I will use this to apply for jobs.
welcome to your job interview, please have a seat.
My current one is Hotmail. But it just sounds too childish for me
Are you saying I will look like i'm trying too hard if I use outlook? I'm applying for internships in engineering
Just get GMail, bro. They literally scan your e-mails for you. Wait, wait, don't laugh! There IS a benefit to having all of your e-mails read by Google! If you mention the word "resume" in your e-mail, and happen to forget to attach it, Google will fucking remind you, as you hit "Send". Wwwhhhoooaaa!!!
A little privacy violation now and then is totally worth it :)
>talk with my friend on email about my love for nail-clippers
>botnet reads my email
>botnet show me ads about nail-clippers
>don't use adblockers
>see ad about nail-clippers
>find a good deal on nail-clippers
Tell me why I shouldn't be part of the botnet if my life is ultimately easier with it.
I have a small business and use yandex with my custom domain For that professional look. I still redirect everything to my gmail account though but yandex hasn't failed me yet.
Don't try Zoho, though, their emails get sent to spam in Microsoft mails (outlook or hotmail)
GMail will link you to a Google Plus profile and everyone who knows your name will be able to search you and see your profile.
Use an email provider that doesn't cuck you with unwanted shit, for example Mail.ru or Yandex.com (I recommend this one).
Most people hiring you will not think anything of it because it is common, it doesn't date you like Hotmail/Yahoo/Live will.
Outlook may be a recognized name for users, but as a domain name it isn't as ubiquitous as gmail.
If you know that it is a woman doing the selection.. go with icloud.
Originally we hosted clients emails on our AWS instance but after we picked up ten or so businesses the time and cost involved was too great.
Now we simply charge a markup on the $10/per person each month and host using Google's business email. I'd recommend it if you're looking for a cheap, somewhat secure option that supports custom domains with minimal work required.
I always use my old college email to apply for jobs and stuff along those lines.
I use my ancient AOL email for anything junkish
Gmail for everything else.
Really, Though they care more about you having a linkedin page.
If you already have a hotmail email, pic related it's in the options menu.
This allows you to send emails as an @outlook.com email address, but everything is still collected in one inbox
>tfw I got my 3 letter initials @outlook.com on day 1
They = a program
How do you think they do virus scans?
Fuck off with your tinfoil shit, some of us have better things to do with our time and no CP to hide, so we don't give a shit
as someone who makes hiring decisions at a startup, if I see a candidate use something like protonmail.com or tutanota.de or any other form of encrypted mail - it's always a plus in my eyes - means they are technology aware. (this is similar to are you dressed well - not that important - but can make a positive impression)
don't do raw gpg key encryption though if you are mailing non-tech teams. they will have no idea what to do and your emails wont get read.
Of the two, gmail's a little more professional, but own domain is far more so if it's properly run.
I have 3 initials, and I use <initials>@<initials>.io for professional correspondence - that worked out OK.
I have a protonmail somewhere.
I have a <pseudonym>@<pseudonym>.com for some personal stuff, like most of my game logins and so forth, and a bunch of other older ones.
To those using their own domain: I have my VPS all set up for my personal domain, and I could install a mailserver easily enough. Is that actually a good idea, though? Do I risk missing mail/getting sent to spam? Should I be using third party mailservers?
What's better? firstname.nu or firstname.one
I don't like how .nu is from an Island with 1000 people that can be wiped off the map at any time. Plus they ask for an ID number.
But .one is from a shitty hosting company that can be wiped off the map at any time.
do you have an iPhone or Android?
Android go with Gmail
iPhone, you can use either but also icloud.
Gmail doenst seamlessly integrate into iOS the way it does in Android. I will work, but not be ideal(no push, only fetch etc)
Outlook.com will integrate a little better since it uses EAS you get push, but EAS doenst allow custom contact fields so that can limiting.
iCloud is of course fully native to the platform which has its benefits. However, as a service, iCloud mail is the most barebones. Some people like that, others do not.
or you get a windows phone, don't look like a fucking child and use the best email app (that's btw integrated in the OS) available to men?
and you can even use any email provider you want with it
I actually think that's a good thing
I just read an article and it says they delete all of your data when they recycle an account, so what's the problem?
If you aren't using it someone else can take it, gmail should follow that considering every fucking address possible is taken
They have a bunch of addresses (like @engineer.com, @linuxmail.net, etc) and you can add e-mail aliases once you create your main account.
The main attraction for me is that you don't need an alternative e-mail, AND you DO NOT need to provide any sort of real identification (phone, address, zipcode, etc). Remember to save your Customer # somewhere in case you have to recover your account.
That's a feature on the front-end though, doesn't necessarily mean that Giggle is looking at your email, it's just a script running in your browser that checks the text box for keywords and returns a warning if you haven't attached anything.
firstname.lastname@example.org is boss especially if you have a short last name. If its taken use the first letter of your first name. eg. email@example.com
outlook is the best domain for business by far.
it's sort of sad that so many of you fucking losers have to clamor for decent-looking @gmail or @outlook addresses.
use your @cs.university.edu address. doesn't matter what username you have as long as it's not retarded or racist or something.
I also want to throw in posteo. Its encrypted but not the fort Knox lvl protonmail offers. In return its compatible with your regulär APP clients and 100% addfree and buys its electricity soly Form regenerative sources. But its a Buck a month.
Outlook is associated with the corporate world. Gmail is associated with media and comes off as less professional. Whenever I'm looking for a service and I see the person list their gmail e-mail it comes off unprofessional.
I have literally
My frontname isn't very common but its only 5 characters.
All companies think I'm a Microsoft god or something. I always get fast responses when mailing and offer me jobs. Seriously find the guy that has YOUR email address and buy it from him, it will pay itself back in the long run
Fun fact, you can use any character in your email address as long as it's between double quotes.
"my user@name()"@gmail.com is valid, but some people put a regexp filter on it that doesn't allow you to type it.
Check if you are visible on all dns servers.
You will receive spam but less because your domain is not well-known.
Third-party is better if you think it might fail one day and you'll have trouble fixing it
