Google Apps for Domains

Did anybody try this yet?

I spent a few hours last night setting it up (standard edition - free) for my main domain and I have to say I am incredibly impressed.

Now I have all the email for me@mydomain.com going straight to Gmail and I can access it via the web like http://email.mydomain.com. I also setup http://calendar.mydomain.com, http://docs.mydomain.com, and even tried their web page system at http://www.mydomain.com. To make a start page for my company, I set it to be http://google.mydomain.com.

The really amazing thing, as most of you know, is Gmail's world class spam filtering. It didn't miss a single spam in the first 14 hours (so far) and caught about 100. I was really beginning to hate standard ISP email, and I don't have time to be constantly fiddling with spam prevention on my own mailserver.

Highly recommended.

Re: Google Apps for Domains

Yeah they are beyond impressive as far as client-side innovation goes. Google gang are so good it's hard to overestimate. Gears alone is a masterpiece of programming from what I can tell.

gmail for most people catches 99% of spam. Anyone who's tinkered with setting rules and filters and stuff only to be frustrated by leakage should be a convert. Just like gmaps they really showed the rest of the world a better way to do things.

The calendaring is deceptively plain but it's solid. They have an appropriately boring API so that you can really use it as a backend for group-focused applications. I haven't seen the web page thing, but I bet it's easy.

Now one of these days people are gonna appreciate what other genius productions are available for the masses from Amazon.com. S3, EC2, perhaps the payment system that I haven't used yet - these are web-app changing innovations on a scale with some of Google's work. S3 is so simple to use, not only is it the archetypal REST API, but my mom could use it. And EC2 is just genius pure and simple.

Regarding SPAM, I had one false negative out of approximately 300 correct positives, and I clicked the "report as spam" button. No false positives.

Re: Google Apps for Domains

G Apps is great, I tried it for a long time now, since I saw the first ad for Apps at DS where I knew about it, I used to use Gmail only not all features, totally a great and stable service

No, you only have to point your domain's MX (mail exchanger) DNS records to google's mailservers. You can still use your domain however you like, don't need to use it with google at all if you don't want to.
