Yep, that's what it takes. Two seconds to open an email account.
I can't think of a technology feat that is easier to do than open your own personal email. Hence, why I am so utterly confused when I get emailed portfolios through another person's account.
Like a creative has his wife/girlfriend/sister email me his portfolio through her email address. Weird. Really weird. I truly have tried to think of reasons why people would do this. Yea, none come up.
The question is, when I reply, should I acknowledge the person whose account it really is? "Hi Darcy, I see this is your email, but someone named John just sent me his portfolio from this email address. Could you let him know to get back to me? Thanks."
Take the two seconds.
