Use your scheme with invitations and links but do put the new users in a walled-garden like environment. They are associated to their corresponding admin, they may sign in and use basic functions (like sending the admin a message or related functions) but the admin has to verify the logged in user, this will be a one-more-click process for the admin, but a ...

Regarding research, yes, there is research. But if you want to see the full research results, generally you have to pay for that. Just one example, "Econsultancy" provides free articles about what they consider contact details best practices, but if you want the full research results, that is available for sale. Boiled down to its simplest, the best ...

Rather than debating, I would automatically go with the online form thing. And the reasons are obvious, the convenience for the user. When filling an online form, you do not need to open your email and login, then compose the email and make sure that they have put the correct email address in the field. With contact form, all you need to do is input your ...

If both languages are supported equally, then put them both in the body of the email. If most of your readers are going to be reading it on desktop, you can try putting both languages side-by-side. This can be especially good if one language is read left-to-right (ex: English, Spanish) and the other is read right-to-left (ex: Hebrew, Arabic); readers of ...

Just to add to this thread, I have often seen people in Germany use info@johndoe.com. Depending on your addressed user it might come of as too distant / weird though.

Know your target. I think one solution is to send the email in the language of most user you have and at top of email you can put web link for web page in which there are translation for others. In this way you can accommodate most part of your public.

I would personally recommend the equivalent of john@johndoe.com, which is the format I use. I agree with your assessment — to me, emails like me@johndoe.com and hi@johndoe.com seem a bit too playful or informal. I like to use one email address across all the services I use, so something that is completely neutral is key. Hard to get more neutral than ...

info@johndoe.com or questions@johndoe.com I feel like "info" is sufficiently informal that it doesn't sounds stuffy, but at the same time it's pretty standard. "Questions" is less standard, but easy to remember. Although people might not remember to pluralize it, so I'd have "question" (without the 's') forward to you too. Whatever you use, make sure the ...

The best one I've seen a lot, particularly for small businesses and agencies is: hello@johndoe.com or hi@johndoe.com It is friendly, non-specific and not pretentious.

You don't say what kinds of projects - that may have a big impact. Web projects? Development? UX? Design? SEO? Who do you want to attract? For the most part, we don't remember someone's email address letter for letter, we either have a card, put it in the phone, or email a quick note on the spot. So the email address is really more for impact than mnemonic ...

Yes, contact@ or John@johndoe.com Or a gmail. Many people are giving out their Twitter names instead of email nowadays when they present or on their sites, but always good to have different contact options.

admin@johndoe.com - for admin stuff support@johndoe.com - for support stuff hr@johndoe.com - for hr stuff contact@johndoe.com - for communication over mail Such email ids are fairly standard nowadays. Am I better off using a known provider such as @gmail.com or @yahoo.com? If you own your own email domain name then why go for other email providers. ...

No e-mail confirmation was sent after registration. This is bad, as it allows anyone to sign up any random email address to the newsletter. It might also explain why your newsletter ends up in the Spam folder. how can I ensure that the newsletter will be delivered in the inboxes of the mailing list if none of the recepients have the sending ...
