email@[companyname].com [Apr. 13th, 2007|02:00 pm]

My CPA's email address is email@[companyname].com. The whole office shares one email account. This is their upgrade from before, when they all used their own connections (dial-up?) to AOL, yet had separate email addresses.

I just picked up a smaller CPA firm (about 10 employees) as a client and wanted to get them all their own email, but they are afraid.

Right now they use one AOL email address, and one person checks it every few days and prints out the emails and they respond by phone or postal mail.

It's amazing how many small companies I deal that prefer nickname[0-9]{1,4}@(yahoo|msn|hotmail).com as their email on business cards over firstname@company.com.

The one that kills me is how many small business owner/operators insist on having for their primary email address info@${companyname}.com. And that's the "From:" address when they send email too. To me, it's a sign of a fly-by-night operation.

uh- new CPA?

wouldn't hurt to do turbotax yourself and compare the effectiveness-
they don't charge until you complete things.

I have a CPA client that has an AOL email. Been trying to get her off it.

I would second that. Every employee of that company gets to see all your financial data? Ew. :P
