POP E-mail configuration in outlook 2003

outlookA domain based email always gives professional and unique identity. Reports say that customers prefer their service providers having domain based emails. (ex: info@legendstyles.com or ravi@legendstyles.com etc) Most of the hosting companies offer email services, based on the package we choose.

If you are running a business and still operating with free emails like gmail or Yahoo or hotmail, I strongly suggest you to shift to domain based emails for more professional approach with your clients. If you need any help, do not hesitate to contact me on ravi@legendstyles or call 9491016993
