First of all there will not be any ads when you checking your mail via web, your email account will not be blocked if you haven't logged in for some time etc. Also you will be able to setup email forwarders and email autoresponds.
also using the emails of @ your domain looks more professional.
i.e. which looks more professional
email: joesplumbers234 @ gmail.com
email: joe @ joesplumbers.com
why go to the expense of getting a domain and setting up a website and then use a free email address rather than 1 linked to the domain.
