What’s wrong with a @aol.com email address?

Every few months I’ll get handed a business card or get an email from someone who has an email address @aol.com. I always recommend getting a new address. AOL hasn’t been a big name in the web for years and they’re pretty much a laughing point now.

An email @google.com or @yahoo.com would be a better option. And if you have a website, be sure to use an email address @ YourDomainName.com. You can always set the email up to forward to your other preferred email address, just don’t publish them. The email address @YourDomainName.com always looks much more professional.
