    Do people primarily use email clients? I just use gmail in the browser.

      Gmail is great but I'm using an email client because it's more professional and I need it to have a better process with my clients

      Yes, if you work in any corporate environment you'll pretty much have to use an email client. Gmail isn't professional

        Are you referring to the @gmail.com not being professional or the usage of the gmail client itself?

          Hmm, both really, but more in the sense that managing several non-gmail addresses in the platform gets problematic.

          In my client, for instance, I have four different corporate email addresses I have to keep track of during the day. In gmail you can only really see the emails from one of the accounts at a time (you need to interact with the top-level menu to see what other accounts are doing), where I need to be able to monitor all four at once. Using Apple Mail (and sometimes Thunderbird on my PC) makes for a better workflow.

          Though personally I view a @gmail address as being personal and not professional. (i.e. If I'm contacting XYZbusiness, I want to see a @XYZbusiness.com email address to add a level of reassurance that I'm dealing with a legitimate entity). However I currently use a gmail address for my freelance stuff. One day I need to re-register my old personal domain again though, lol.

        Using Gmail, like GSuit, is superprofessional. It gives you less hassle of maintaining mailserver stuff, so you can use that time for you business.

          To be honest, it's not when you need to keep track of where your data is actually located. Having IP sitting in offshore servers isn't good enough for a lot of companies.
