Custom e-mail addresses are a means of recognition. If professionals possess an e-mail address on a custom domain tailored to their profession rather than Google or Yahoo, they will not only have a good first impression but also a reflection of what they do. Custom e-mail addresses can be used on their own, as well as connected to existing e-mail accounts. Messages sent to a custom-domain e-mail address may be forwarded to an existing e-mail account, if needed.
