Gmail for Domains


Garett Rogers found some code in Gmail which hints that Google may be looking to turn Gmail into a global mail server:

Their next big move will likely be GMail for domains — a powerful way for anybody who owns a domain to utilize GMail as a mail server, not just a client.

As Gmail expands will Google use Gmail data to alter search relevancy scores? How many large scale businesses would feel comfortable allowing the web's largest ad company peer at their communications?

>>alter search relevancy scores

i think they'll use pretty much all the info they can to refine their algorithm.

this day in age i feel companies have to take the risk of trusting important stuff to a third party at some point -- outsourced web hosting is a prime example -- so at times i personally like the comfort of a large company's stability and public visibility.

i wonder what kind of lock in strategies they will try.

Hotmail Does it Already

You can set your MX info to point to a hotmail MX, and then create hotmail accounts with your own domain name currently.

Haven't seen many doing it yet - but its pretty interesting stuff.

For domains, yes, but adverts included

I think this would be another good service from the little devil, altough i am positive Adsense will be included in the webmail server, for domains.
