    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 and my name is me.
    Let's also say I have an enmail account set up as
    I have set up pop3 access so Outlook can access my xyz emails at

    So I have created a forward address where if someone emails me at, I forward it to my email account at 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[] 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 address, not my address. Similarly, when they hot reply to the message, the reply message goes to 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".

    Am I missing something or doesn't this derail the whole scheme?
