How does a serious German email address look like?
- the "German way"
Compare two addresses:
Address #1 - correct looking: firstname.lastname@example.org
If the address does not contain your name, then at least your name must be visible before the email address, like this: Jaroslav Plotnikov < email@example.com >
Conventional form in Germany: firstname.lastname@... (e.g. Angela.Merkel@...)
Address #2 - Not serious: email addresses without names, or like that: firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you find an email address firstname.lastname@... too official for you? How about to divorce them? You can use this serious looking email-address for official purposes only.
For the official communication with German authorities and institutions (with employer or landlord, with authorities, bank, insurance company etc.) it is a perfect choice! I would use such address for job search, housing search etc. In a word for all official and business opportunities, where you want to look solid and expect quick feedback.
If this email ID is already registered, here are some common variations:
