Do you believe it matters? For things like resumes and similar professional reasons? Are there those who won't take you as seriously if you have a disposable free gmail or outlook.com or yahoo email with numbers in it?

Domain makes no difference, sexy69@whatever. com and you are stupid. Same with having a stupid response for your voicemail, and I have seen people passed on for that and ring back tones.

My Yahoo.com is for non-professional. My domain email is used for professional.

This is kind of one of those common sense things. Like not posting drunken photos on your facebook for future potential employers to judge you by.

I stick to Gmail containing my name for anything even partially professional, it's linked to my Facebook and Linkedin but I'm very careful to watch what's visible on both of those sites.

My personal/professional email address is practically my name. I'm not posting here because I don't want to get spammed but it is:
Firstname@Lastname.net
Making it pretty darned easy for people I wish to give it to: Which would include employment prospects. When your name is your domain it kinda makes you look like a nerd, and that is what they are hiring.

Having a DIC++ account isn't bad either. Having an email address of: yourname@DreamInCode.net sounds fairly pro.
