Gmail for your domain

by Volker Weber

Bring Gmail to your domain. This special beta test lets you give Gmail, Google's webmail service, to every user at your domain. Gmail for your domain is hosted by Google, so there's no hardware or software for you to install or maintain.

This will be big, when Google rolls it out. E-Mail hosted by Google, but with your own domain instead of @gmail.com.

Klingt verdammt interessant - immerhin ist gmail - zumindest meiner Meinung nach - der derzeit beste verfügbare Webmail-Service (Vom Bekannheitsgrad mal ganz zu schweigen).

It is an interesting service but it doesn't have a lot of new features. There is already an option to use Gmail with any email address of any domain you like as long as you own it. Feel free to check it out on my blog.

Alt. Gibt's schon bei Hotmail/MSN:

This isn't about individual users. This is about small companies who don't want the hassle of maintaining the own email servers but DO want their email properly branded to represent their organization. And if we look at Google's other initiatives and the way they always tie their offerings together, there WILL be new features added to support organizations (in addition to the user management control panel). Obviously, Google Talk will be the small company's version of SameTime, and Google will add calendaring to Gmail at some point.

I'm with Vowe; this will be *huge* when it goes live.

There is one major problem only: Gmail still does not support IMAP. Combine their nice web mail interface and the search capabilities with the 2 GB space AND IMAP - that would surely rock!

Benno, schön Dich zu "sehen".

I am also missing IMAP, but I also think it is incompatible with the way Google handles mail in their UI. There are no folders to manage. With GMail and POP3 you just leave all mail on the server. You have a local copy, and you can have multiple clients with a local copy.

Dunno what the big deal is. Yahoo has had this service for years. Up to 50 hosted webmail emails, with optional POP/SMTP client access, with your own domain, and they throw in Web hosting too, for about $12 a month....I've used it for 2 years now.

IMAP is a must for consultants living their life behind the firewalls of their clients. I have to manage all my business during the lunch break. Having my email available anywhere via plain http is the only way to go. I really hope gmail will add folder support some day...

Benjamin Stein, 2006-02-13

addition: I just come to think that gmail's idea may have been to replace the folders concept by the powerful search capabilities...

I just started to try out Joyent (http://www.joyent.com). It featues Mail / Calendar / Files sharing, has IMAP. The current version doesn't support your own domain, but that should be coming really soon now.

Joyent has both web and IMAP interfaces, it's not free, but it looks like a nice solution for a small workgroup collaboration platform.

The problem with the current functionality in Gmail, described in Ralph Unden's blog above is that the email sent by the Gmail account is sent from: "xxx@gmail.com On Behalf Of xxx@yyyyy.com", which is not very elegant. I'll wait eagerly for Gmail's rollout...
