Get your own domain and get BES hosting. Having a yahoo, gmail, or aol account for business seems really unprofessional to me.

I use Gmail and it works out great. It pushes the email to my BB and people don't ever have to know my BB's email address. When sending an email you can select it to send from any email address you have set up. I'm happy.

Agreed. I use themessagecenter.com for email and BES.

I agree with using your own domain name. You are a professional and using aol, yahoo, gmail or some other just doesn't look right to me either. GoDaddy.com can register your domain name and set you up an email address for very little money. Then you can use BIS for mail to the BB rather than paying for BES hosting.

Get your own domain and use google for domains. Is the best bang for buck you can get.

I'd say that BES (hosted or otherwise) is really "best" -- though what's best depends on your needs/wants like anything else. However, my guess is that Jaime's suggestion, which is a close second IMO, is probably better suited to your needs.

Definitely register and use your own domain name no matter what. I'm personally leery (as many others are) of those that do business under a Hotmail, gmail, Yahoo, or AOL account.

1. BES Full service approach: get your own domain, get Microsoft Exchange hosting with BES (like Mailstreet), messaging is instant and includes wireless calendar and contact sync

Minimum costs per month: Under $1 for domain name, $23 for Exchange BES, and $29 for T-Mobile or $39 to $64 Cingular for BES data service add-on (not counting voice plan).

2. BIS/ IMAP web hosting approach: get your own domain, get web hosting on a service with IMAP emails (like Lunarpages), but messaging is delayed 10-20 minutes on average with no wireless calendar or contact syncing

Minimum costs per month: $8 for hosting and domain name puls $19 for T-Mobile or $34 for Cingular (not counting voice plan)
