Anyone that still uses an Hotmail, AOL or Yahoo email address is publicly admitting that technology has passed them by. It is not that they are just uncool, they are a security risk. If you are running a business via AOL or Yahoo email, you need to know that your customers and contacts are at risk from receiving malware, spyware or other damaging payload via your email account.
It is not that they are just uncool, they are a security risk.
Most people with Hotmail, AOL & Yahoo accounts have no idea what two-factor authentication is or how to enable it. Because of that, these email accounts are very susceptible to someone cracking the password and sending email to all of your address book and people that you have ever sent a message to or received a message from. Despite the embarrassment of having your account hacked, it is a liability to your continued business success.
Gmail still has some cachet, but anyone using email for a business purpose can register a domain for $10 and enable email within about 10 minutes. That along with two-factor will help keep your good name solid and secure.
