Make your e-mail more professional and portable
By Susan Bradley
Your e-mail address can leave business associates with a good — or not-so-good — impression of you as a businessperson.
Creating a custom domain name for your e-mail can make your correspondence look more professional, and setting it up isn't as hard as it might seem.

I already do this, but I have hit a snag which you didn't mention.
Lets say my domain is mydomain.com and my name is me.
Let's also say I have an enmail account set up as email@example.com.
I have set up pop3 access so Outlook can access my xyz emails at comcast.net.
So I have created a forward address where if someone emails me at firstname.lastname@example.org, I forward it to my email account at email@example.com.This works well, EXCEPT when you read any message that was sent from my outlook to someone else, you find that the "From field" contains me name[firstname.lastname@example.org] As a result of that. several potentially bad things could happen.
If the recipient of the message chhoses to add me to their contact list, they add my email@example.com address, not my firstname.lastname@example.org address. Similarly, when they hot reply to the message, the reply message goes to email@example.com. This ok, up until I switch from comcast to Verizon or change my email addresses at comcast.
I have set up outlook (2003) with "Your name" name as "me name" and my "reply to to address" in "General" as firstname.lastname@example.org".
Am I missing something or doesn't this derail the whole scheme?
