Did you know that you could use Gmail as a mail client for your own domain/website, for free? For years I had been paying upto $30/year for hosting my own domain email address with a mail hosting service. Basically this was due to the huge amount of spam I had been receiving in that email address (being an old one). However, there were many features in that email hosting service that I hardly used and I felt like I was wasting money. In my search for an email hosting service, I came across a cool application by Google called Google Apps, that'll enable you to use Gmail client on your own domain for free. Isn't that great? You get the best spam protection, 7.5 GB email storage and the Gmail experience. I'm absolutely thrilled. All you need to do is change the MX records of your domain, through your domain control panel, to route all emails to Gmail. Everything is mentioned on the Google Apps site. Setting up will take some time and know how but I feel it's worth it.
