One of the best known e mail clients and the most widely used is Gmail, one of the reasons for this is due to its easy to use interface and the second and most likely the biggest drawcard, is that it is completely FREE.
Having said that, it is also the most common form of mail associated with scams, spam and other illicit activity, to the extent that many mails sent from Gmail are filtered out or blocked by servers.
I recently did a survey on Facebook where I asked on one group, how likely you would be to do business with a supplier using Gmail and if using a domain e mail address, would give you more credibility. A screenshot of the results are below:
The numbers here speak for themselves.
Many businesses without a website do not have access to a domain e mail address, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org and are also under the impression that a service like this is going to cost a fortune. The other argument or excuse that I hear often is; “We have always used Gmail”. “We like the ease of use that Gmail Offers”, and the list goes on.
