Not sure if this is an UX question, well somehow it is, but I didn't know a better place to ask anyway. So I will just throw it in here.
Let's say I have the domain johnsmith.com and I want people to reach me via email, what is the best email username to use?
- email@example.com - redundant
- firstname.lastname@example.org - redundant and looks kinda stupid
- email@example.com - makes sense, but looks very "technical"
- firstname.lastname@example.org - for the geeks among us ;-)
Of course, technically I can simply say that I will be able to receive *@johnsmith.com, however, for a better user experience I still just want one email address for public presence (website, business cards, etc.).
