Email Hosting with Google Apps
« on: April 19, 2010, 07:34:21 PM »

Hi all,

A good while back I posted about having my email hosted on my own domain name.

Now today I thought i'd take the plunge and go for it! I would've liked Vidahost to provide the service but they don't offer Email hosting.

My next alternative was Google Apps Standard (which is free) and provides 50 email inboxes for Free, with around 7GB storage each!!

Its easy to setup when you adjust the MX and CNAME records for the domain!

I am surprised how easy and how good it actually is!

Will test it out for a while before I fully move over to Apps from my ISP email

Any progress on this?  What's it like hosting your emails on Google?  Any different to the vanilla gmail accounts?  Do you get a control panel of sorts as an admin user?  Can you give some users access to their email control panel?

Please let us know.

Just noticed this reply.

Yes you do get a control panel. Its based all on Google's own servers and you get 50email accounts to play with. Each with 7gb storage and spam/virus filters.

Its exactly the same as Gmail accounts, bar the @gmail.com domain

Wow! All this for free?  It sounds rather attractive compared to shared hosting offerings by ISPs.

Of course you get Google parsing all your messages, but gpg or s/mime can always keep private communications encrypted.

Thanks for getting back after all this time.  :)
