Business Class Email Solution for Business Emails

When you send emails in this day and age it's important to ensure you contact clients in the most professional way possible which via email is through your domains very own privately hosted email service.

Toolkit Websites will provide you with your very own email account on your domain, which can also be used with our Email Marketing service. Free email services are great for personal use as they can be set up easily and don't come with set up costs however they will put off colleagues and clients if you are sending business emails from 'funkydave@hotmail.co.uk'.

Individuals or organisations relying on free email services like Gmail or Hotmail are under threat from being disregarded as amateur or bogus. Having a professional email account is the marker of a credible and established company. First impressions mean everything!

 

"But I've used Hotmail all my life..."

Google Mail

About Google Mail, or Gmail as you may know it is a free email service that many use for personal addresses outside of the working environment. Gmail will not link to your Domain unless you pay to upgrade which means unless you fork out for extra services you will be contacting businesses from your personal account which is both unnecessary and unprofessional.

Summary

Toolkit Email

Toolkit Websites offer a reliable and consistent professional business class email service linked to your domain name with a dedicated support team in place to help set up and assist with any questions or queries our clients may have.

 

Google Mail

Gmail is a free service from Google that will try and link your account to all of their other products like Webmaster Tools and Google+. Gmail also have hidden charges for recovering passwords and will not provide direct support if problems arise.

 

Outlook (Hotmail/Live)

Hotmail has now been phased out and rebranded as 'Outlook'. Hotmail is similar to Gmail as they offer a free email service. Sadly, the free service means you do not get the support you require and cannot use your own domain name on your emails.
