GMail for all

Some time ago, I started using GMail as my mail client. The only way I could do this without changing my email address ( was to auto-forward all email to to I could then configure GMail to respond from my account, but it did this by putting "From on behalf of" at the top of each email. Rubbish.

Recently, Google Apps enhanced its functionality to allow you to direct your MX records directly at its servers, and for it to control your domain’s email address. So now, can be accessed directly through GMail. And I can even change the GMail logo to my own domain logo. No reference to GMail apart from a google url and a "Powered by Google" footer, accompanied by a diddy logo. Fabulous!

Now I need to figure out how to migrate all my mail to It’s no mean feat, by all accounts.
