I read about Google’s free MX (mail exchange) domain mapping while I was tinkering around with my WordPress.com blog. I was excited that this service was given free as long as you won’t be creating more than 100 e-mail accounts on your domain, and being a private domain, I don’t think WebGrrrl.net is going to have any more than five accounts.
I would recommend anyone who own your own domain to host your e-mail accounts in Google. It already has a fantastic interface to work with, ample storage, a great built-in spam protection mechanism, and you don’t have to worry about importing your e-mail addresses, messages and stuff if you decide on switching to a different web hosting provider once in a while (I don’t use POP to download my e-mails and just access them through a webmail, as I like the ease of accessing my messages through any computer I want). Best of all, once you integrate your domain with Google Apps, you’ll be able to use other popular Google Apps like Google Talk, Google Docs, Google Calendar and Google Sites (great for those of us who are affiliate marketers and need to built squeeze pages on the fly!), branding them under your domain.
Remember to sign up for the free Standard edition, not the Premier edition as the latter is a paid program that charges USD50 per account per month.
