Using Gmail to manage your hosted domain.

Want to your email hosted by GMAIL for FREE ?!

Many of my customers have been extremely happy using gmail as their primary interface when dealing with mail addressed to their hosted domains. Using this technique, emails appear to be received and sent from your domain, but all email management is completed at gmail.

You too, can have this feature for FREE, Google is giving free service for small organisation, check their TOS. If I remember well, it is up to 10 users and 10GB of email account each.

Give it about an hour or two, and you are now live with Gmail for your domain.
