For example, if you own the www.apple.com website then you probably will have email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
Unless you are an enterprise company, you will most likely be accessing your email via POP, IMAP, or a webmail over HTTP.
Here's alternate way of accessing the emails for your domains: Gmail
That's right! You can use Gmail to access emails associated with your domains if you open a Google Apps account for your domain, which is absolutely free.
Here are the 3 reasons why you should do it:
- It's Gmail! Owned and operated by Google... and you probably already have a personal Gmail account so you are already familiar with Gmail user interface.
- You can access it via POP, IMAP, Webmail, and even in native iPhone, iPad, Android email applications!
- You get all the power of Gmail, such as search engine and one of the best SPAM filtering.
I just created Google Apps account for one of my business domains and was able to access the admin email account using Gmail. It's really cool.
So what are you waiting for? Once you use it, you will never go back to plain, old, sucky web mail account for your domains.
