There are inherent risks that should be enough to avert you from using a personal email account for business purposes. Personal email accounts exist outside of your I.T. companies control and they are not subject to backup, archiving, security, or governance. If you are looking to cement your business as a professional and trustworthy organization, then safe, secure, and on-brand email is where you should start.
It is important to enforce strict company policies against the use of personal email for business and employ business email addresses using your company’s domain name. If your company’s website domain is realcompany.com, your companies email address should look like this: [email protected]
