A business email address is a must-have if you're in business.
There is nothing worse than receiving an email from a gmail, hotmail or any generic account when you believe the business sending it is a strong, viable and trustworthy business. Right off the bat, it says something about your business. Either you don't have a website, you couldn't be bothered to register a matching business email address to your domain, or you didn't want to spend the money on something you can get free. Either way, it doesn't look good when your email lands in a potential customer's inbox -- especially if you're prospecting.
Honestly, it isn't that expensive and worth the investment for trust and professionalism.

One final mention:
Most business email addresses will require code to be added in the backend of your website for your email to function. If you have registered the domain and the email in the same place, this usually isn't an issue as it is setup through the registrar. If you are working with a web designer, they will add this code to your website for you. If you have built your website on some of the free platforms available today, adding code to the site is not always possible. Consider this when choosing a website platform.
