    I just read some well written articles related to professional email addresses. Most of them recommended using email address professionally when applying for a job or building a resume. Professional email address will most likely include first and last name only, examples like:

    - johnsmith@email.com
    - john.s@email.com
    - j.smith@email.com
    - jsmith@email.com
    - john.smith@email.com
    - smith.j@email.com
    - smith.john@email.com

    What's your opinions on using numbers in email address (like: johnsmith.1990, johnsmith1990, johnsmith18, johnsmith559, etc.)?

    It does look unprofessional. I have numbers in my personal email, but use a professional email address for anything official.

    I wouldn't advice using it for professional emails. Putting your birth year after your name is a bad idea especially

    Sometimes the numbers can stand for something,like , the number can represent the year.

    It is that too bad like you think. I have used numbers that are combination of my birthday and my registration number. If you like, add it otherwise leave it. But i think its not a huge mistake.

    I suggest not to use numbers in e-mail adress. It just don't look good. But if someone got e-mail with your name then probably you can use numbers.

    I think it's fine if there are numbers in the email, it's not a big deal for me.

    It looks like a default email address when registering a new email. I don't like it whether it's professional or not that's judged by some people. IMHO, the email with numbers on it is an unprofessional email. Also, my usernames on all forum and websites are not using numbers. - No offence -

    Don't use numbers. Numbers make it seem like you couldn't get the e-mail address name you really wanted so you had to add a number to it. It looks unprofessional in my opinion.
