I often receive emails from info @ mywebsite.com or sales @ mywebsite.com or admin @ mywebsite.com and unless I know the owner of mywebsite.com I am a little weary. One thing that I suggest to all my clients is to add an Email Account Name so that when an email is sent it has your name and business name, or at least your business name.

Whether you’re using Windows Mail, Mac Mail, Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo or Entourage, the steps are very similar.
