GMail for Domains

Before using my @dfile.nl e-mail address I primarily used a GMail address. I loved it! GMail's webinterface is vastly superior to any e-mail webinterface I used. When Google started the GMail for Domains beta-test I immediately signed up for it.

Last week I got invited for the test. All I had to do was change some MX-records. Now I can use the GMail webinterface and Google's diskspace (2 gigabytes per user I decide to create ;)) for my mail while still retaining my @dfile.nl address.

It isn't much different from the normal GMail experience. There's an extra admin panel which allows you to add extra users (manually or using a CSV file) and aliasses (including a catch-all). It's an equal experience from a user perspective though, with the exception of not having Google Calendar integration yet (which some users already have, being rolled out while we speak... uhm write... uhm read).
