February 20, 2006 Google to provide email hosting?
This week, Google’s GMail product manager Stephanie Hannon blogged that the company was piloting email provision for organizations under their own domain name (as opposed to gmail.com). As a part of its pilot initiative, Google is working with San Jose City College. At the end of her post, she offers organizations and opportunity to apply to be a part of Google’s beta testing of the service. I immediately signed up one of my domains but I have to wait to see if I get approved for inclusion in the program or not. Other Internet behemoths offer this service as well. Yahoo has its free email system. But, if you want Yahoo to host email under your company’s domain name, it will for a fee as a part of its small business offerings.
