This is a very great revolution for those who couldnt manage their mail servers. Google is going to host the mail stuff for any domains available on internet. They are going to provide as many Email accounts you need for all your customers and your organization for free with a mailbox size of 2.5GB. Its providing all the feature of Gmail like attachments, chat, anti virus scan and many more. Even they are going to provide some control panel to customize those accounts. Still this feature is in Beta stage. I guess this is going to compete the M$ similar strategy called live domains. ‘Live’ is going to be the last hope for Microsoft to battle with google on Internet. A serious war is going between google products and M$ live feature. I don’t wish to promote what they do but if you are really interested what are up to go to www.live.com. But I guess the major issue about this Gmail Domains might be about the privacy. Google is really getting more and more into privacy. Its poking nose on to every aspect of a normal Internet user. Most of the time the end user is totally unaware that a massive data mining is done on him. So we have to wait and see how the corporate world is going to take up this. I don’t exactly know what mail extension they are gonna provide but Microsoft is going to provide the exact extension of your domain like " email@example.com". So if any one wish to avail that facility I think there is much threat in it. For ppl who go for a cheap hosting plan they get only few email accounts with the type of hosting plan they choose. I guess its really useful for such ppl.
