I've been so impressed by gmail that £27 for a 10gig version with no adverts is worth the entrance fee alone.

per domain per year, ideal for clients as you can white label it and use the API, the amount of shit our email server causes us it would be worth it.

run this by me again

1. Gmail can be run off a domain e.g: gmail.mydomain.com?

2. Can be used as a server for mail,

3. Can be customised and skinned via the api & css?

4. Can send mail without the naff - from: user@mydomain dot com on behalf of user@gmail dot com?

...If so I think this is going to be the best thing that ever happend to small resellers/designers - as, like frelancr, I have to deal with lame e-mail servers all the time...

added: http://www.google.com/a/help/intl/en.../editions.html - to sign up for trial free until end of April.

4. Yep

why pay? I mean yeah for the extra space, but otherwise 2 gig per email address is enough for most clients.

I actually Just set this up for a small client - sorted thier Pop access through the gmail apps so they collect thier email in outlook as they would otherwise - they never even go near gmail (which would just confuse them anyway). service as usual but no ads, and very little spam.
