Wrong. If you're using an email address from AOL you're wearing a big sign on your forehead that says "I have no clue what is going on in the world." I don't care if you actually do or not. You wouldn't wear a Hawaiian shirt, shorts and sandals to meet with a big client, so you shouldn't do the same thing with your email address.
How you present yourself is important. If you don't realize that you're not living in reality.
And yes, if I ever see someone with an AOL address, I immediately mentally disqualify the possibility that they know anything about what is going on with computers and technology.
