Send and receive messages using your business email address (domain name) since it is more professional than a yahoo or aol or gmail address.
Utilize email marketing and newsletters to drive traffic to your site and keep your mailbox clean with anti-spam software.
Your website email can be accessed by either:
- Logging directly into the webmail server with your email address and password
(usually at http://mail.yourdomain.com (or)
- Forwarding incoming messages to a personal address such as Comcast or Yahoo (or)
- Adding your email address(es) to POP mail software such as Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora,
Mozilla Thunderbird, Opera Mail, or Pegasus
The last option (POP) can be best for several reasons.
You can receive AND send from your business address, which you can’t do if you simply forward messages. You can also add anti-SPAM software to reduce junk messages. Prices for those programs range from free to $50/year. I’m using one called Cloudmark Anti-SPAM that costs $40/year, but it does a great job…. Or just search for “anti spam”.
