| ||Ask HN: Facebook emails as facebookmail.com. Should I?|

|If I'm startup.com, is it advisable to have my corporate email come from firstname.lastname@example.org, and user notifications come from email@example.com?|
I assume facebook has both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com so that their employees don't get their own outgoing emails blocked as spam the same way that "Bob sent you a message on Facebook!" messages might.
However, I am guessing that my notifications might be likely to be tagged as spam if notifications come from startupmail.com and those notifications contain links to startup.com (or a reply-to: to firstname.lastname@example.org).
Any experienced insights much appreciated!
EDIT: Any thoughts on the variant of having email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org, and the effect of a spam rating of the subdomain on the main domain?
