If you already have a domain address for your band (www.xxx.co.uk) then it's better to have an email address linked to this  (enquiries@xxx.co.uk). Not only is this more professional but you also have more control over the filters. Domain names only cost a few pounds and free web hosting (with 5 email accounts) is available from AMPuk Hosting (see benefits page) for all AMPband members.
