Why is a professional email address essential in business?

Posted by Viola Eva on augustus 21, 2018

First impressions matter, especially in business when your end goal is to attract clients and customers. This statement is even more accurate when it comes to email business communication, as people are becoming more and more selective when it comes to their inbox. Spam emails and promotional offers from unwanted sources tend to make people wary of opening a new message, and this is where your professional email address comes into play.   Learn about Mailbird – the top Windows email client that provides you with the best managing options for a growing business!   We are going to give you a few elementary examples about the importance of a professional email address that we’re sure have already happened to you in one form or another. Imagine looking for the perfect wedding photographer, and of course, you want a professional, who is affordable, but still good at his job. While you’re searching through the web and getting irritated because you have already seen way too many people on Craigslist that don’t quite fit the criteria, a struck of luck hits you, and you find “the one”.   You’re browsing the online catalogue of finished projects with wedding photographs, and they look great. Also, the price list is within your range, and you’re ready to hire this person — until you check the info and it says contact: [email protected] Do you still want to hire him?   Now let’s move on to a more professional setting, for example, a workshop or…

5 Alternatieven voor Outlook in 2018

Posted by Christin on augustus 6, 2018

Microsoft Outlook heeft de reputatie dat het een duidelijk programma is met veel functies, instellingen en extra’s. Tenzij je tijd hebt om het programma goed te leren kennen zodat je al deze functies kunt gebruiken, zal je hier waarschijnlijk weinig aan hebben. Het kan zelfs overweldigend zijn als je een programma wilt gebruiken terwijl de gebruikersinterface vol staat met extra functies. Mensen gaan op zoek naar minder ingewikkelde alternatieven voor Outlook als ze het programma puur voor e-mails en misschien voor taken of als kalender willen gebruiken. Veel van de alternatieven voor outlook die we hieronder delen zijn gratis – of in ieder geval minder duur dan wat je voor Outlook zou moeten betalen. Als je op zoek bent naar een programma met een simpele interface maar wel met de belangrijkste functies die Outlook heeft, hebben we hieronder een lijst met programma’s die je zou kunnen overwegen te gebruiken. Goede alternatieven voor Outlook 1. Mailbird Loop je tegen de ingewikkelde lay-out en gebruikersinterface van Outlook aan? Dan is Mailbird een van de beste alternatieven voor Outlook.

Veel mensen schijnen te denken dat Mailbird minder functies heeft dan Outlook. Dit is niet waar. Mailbird heeft zelfs meer geavanceerde functies van Outlook en…

Multiple Accounts: How to Best Combine Personal and Work Email

Posted by Christin on februari 16, 2017

Are you tired of managing multiple accounts across different email platforms?  The average person has at least two email inboxes: one for personal use and one for work. It isn’t terribly difficult to manage a pair of email addresses, but what if you have more? What if you have a personal account and multiple work accounts for different jobs? What if you have a current personal account and multiple other personal accounts from your past? Such as college email addresses or email addresses you made in your teenage years? Handling Multiple Email Accounts At some point, you will probably find that disabling your older and less-used email accounts makes the most sense. In some cases, you might not even have a choice in the matter. Your college may disable accounts of former students. Former employers will probably shut down your old accounts, too. In other words, there’s something to be said for consolidating your email as much as you can. As long as you give friends, family, colleagues, and other contacts your most current email address, consolidation shouldn’t put you at risk for missing many important emails. However, if you do have three or four current email accounts, it can be a real blow to your productivity to have to check and manage all of them on a continuous basis. This statement is especially true if your emails are scattered across multiple email platforms. You have one Hotmail address, a Gmail address or two, and an old Yahoo account that…

Have a POP3 email account?

Posted by Christin on januari 7, 2017

Why POP3? IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) support was launched in October 2013. Since then we received an overwhelming response for POP3 (Post Office Protocol) support too. This was much to our surprise considering many new email providers are moving away from POP3, and onto IMAP, due to the performance benefits and because it’s a better fit with the way email is accessed today on multiple devices. But….that’s not all! Read through to the bottom to see what folder manipulation is all about. What the heck is POP3? POP3 is an abbreviation for Post Office Protocol 3. It’s the third version of a widespread method of receiving email, dating back to the 1980s. Much like the physical version of a post office clerk, POP3 receives and holds email for an individual until they pick it up. And, much as the post office does not make copies of the mail it receives, when an individual downloads email from the server into their email program, their copy of the email on the server is removed. Most clients however, including Mailbird, have an option to leave the message on the server, either temporarily or permanently. (formerly supports POP3, but recently introduced IMAP support. “One of the major issues with Microsoft’s Hotmail replacement,, is you could only access it on the web or, with email clients, through the POP3 or Microsoft’s EAS protocol.” – Lifehacker. A lot more devices and services use IMAP, and now so does Even Windows 8 Mail no longer…
