Hello bhw, The good old days of free google apps services are gone. I cherish the days when they offered a 100 free accounts... they then dropped it to 10 then ultimately 0. Although i have been fortunate enough to have used Gapps before they killed the free version, I am looking to start a new website in a different niche and want to use a custom email for it. I am thinking of going for the business app version for fifty bucks a year per person which is not bad but I wonder if anyone knows better email services? Some will say just use email@example.com and yes I would agree to a certain extent that it could suffice general needs, but personally it kills the authentic trust to see @gmail.com, or @yahoo.com for an email address... esp. for a growing legit business. I would rather see firstname.lastname@example.org. I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks for reading.
