We’ve had our
Textuality.com domain since dinosaurs
stalked the earth, and I’d like
tbray@ to be my personal email
handle right into the grave. But our current ISP/host is kind of lame and
slow and has fourth-rate spam filters that get in the way. So Lauren
Google Apps for Email, and the buzz around it seems good. We’re
about to pull the trigger, but it seems to be harder than it should be.
I currently route the Textuality email over to my Gmail account, where there’s an inventory of ninety thousand or so messages, a couple of gigs’ worth. I find a fluidized Gmail client quite usable, and the Android client is superb.
But there are two problems. Apparently, the way you transfer your Gmail inventory over to Google Apps is via some batch POP3 grind which can take days. Second, it’s not obvious how, or even if, the Android client works with Google Apps.
So if we transfer textuality.com email over to Google Apps, I guess I just keep routing the email through to my Gmail account? Which seems sort of stupid. Or am I missing something obvious?
