It is not always easy to find a simple mail, serious and available. You’ve already experienced.
There is no more irritating than to find this type of message: « This user name has already been assigned. Would you like to try another? « Do we have a choice? No ?
And finally, is it credible to choose the default names and proposed to have a gmail address the type or firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com? No of course. One can even question the nature of the chosen name. In the first example firstname.lastname@example.org, the figure 31 represent what: your age (you do not even think of all you have your whole life 31 years), your department, your birth year (1931…holala … you don? ‘are not young)?
But then how do?
For users to identify you well, I invite you to use your first name and preferably use any letter or initials. Eg davidmartin, david martin, david.martin, dmartin, d-martin, d.martin …. and add a type extension: .perso, .home, .pro, .office …
So, your email address will look like this:
Hopefully this post can help!
