Default Google E-mail for Business ?
Hi Friends,

I'm considering switching my business e-mail to Google E-mail for Business. Does anybody know if they charge you per e-mail address? For instance, I have two e-mail address for my domain (info@ and kim@), so will I have to pay the $50 annual fee for each address?

Trying to get through to Google Support has been awful so figured I'd try here.

Thanks in advance for your help.
Kim

I use the free version. If you are not going to use all the other apps, you get up to 50 email address @yourdomain for free. I get the email through Outlook, on my iPhone and via the website. http://www.google.com/apps/index.html

Hope this helps!

I like the integration to the other apps and have the paid version ($50 per year), but what I do to get over the additional users is set up the other emails with my Web Host ( I use Hostgator) and then forward the email to my main address.

Next thing I do is set up gMail to allow me to send from that address. I probably have 15 different emails that are all forwarded to my email, why so many I use them as a way to track presentations as well as forum sign ups etc....

Shoot me an email if you have any questions, I'm happy to walk you through the process.

I have a client thinking about moving to google apps- his host email keeps having issues and we keep losing attachments.

I did read yesterday that starting May 1st, BUSINESS accounts cannot have more than 10 email addresses/users without paying for an upgrade. This does not apply to personal accounts or those who already have a business account.

Kimberly,

I do use Google Apps for business and yes you can have more than one email. I have one use account ($50) with emails of info@, billing@ and webmaster@. These are considered nicknames and are very easy to set up. Users are those emails that you want to have access to all the bells and whistles, for example a team member.

If one my clients has Apps and wants to add me as an active user to administer many of the same services then I would be a user.

So the short answer is no you would only pay $50 for your one user account and add the email address as nicknames.

Lee,

So if client doesn't want all of us to be able to access available apps, we are considered nicknames? only able to receive email- no using docs or any of that?

If that's what you mean he will be SOOOOOO happy

Christine,

A nickname only allows a user access to more than one email address. You can always get access to the email through the POP3 access in a regular gmail account if they want to stay at the $50 price.

If they want all the information synced (contacts, etc) then you want a user license, if you just want to be able to send and receive then a regular POP3 server will allow this. It is confusing however they need to think that the email set-ups are still through the hosting company and Google Apps is the exchange server that allows everything to work together.

Ok so the email is still going to go through their hosting server?

That won't help our situation- dang it.

Guess I need to find another solution- he isn't ready to "move" to another hosting account yet. I'm trying

Thanks Lee

Christina,

Actually not the email would not be going through his servers, it's directed through Google's When I set u my account, I had to have Hostgator manual make the changes for me because they don't have the ability to change the Mail Servers available as a default.

Your client will typically see a blip in receiving his email for any up to 24 hours as the email servers are updated but that's it. Then he'd have to set up his POP3 accounts again to access his email via Google. (if that makes sense, I'm writing this with a Head Cold Fog )

So with the "Free" Google Apps you client could have multiple email accounts and each of you would have access to the docs, calendars and such he just wouldn't be able to access the marketplace but for many that doesn't matter...the comparison between the free and business app (Paid) is shown here - http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/business/smbs.html, it's still showing 50 emails.

Hope that helps some...
