I have exampledomain.com (which I control) and a firstname.lastname@example.org email address. I would like to merge my email, so I just have one account - all inbound mail to exampledomain.com would go to email@example.com.
My reasoning - my exampledomain.com isn't that "professional" a name, so (bizarre as it may sound) I actually want firstname.lastname@example.org to be my neutral persona (although want to keep all incoming mail coming into email@example.com for legacy purposes and labeled as such!)
1) Is this possible? (I'm not sure of the most elegant way to achieve this - do I need to setup Google Apps for exampledomain.com and grant access to this from firstname.lastname@example.org - before I start messing around with MX records, does granting from Apps to Gmail work? My concern is that I'd need to check the exampledomain.com Apps account's Spam box frequently, as this would be separate from my email@example.com Spam box).
2) Can I just copy across my saved exampledomain.com emails (IMAP4) to firstname.lastname@example.org using Thunderbird, or is there a faster direct web-to-web method instead of it all going via my PC?
3) If I ever wanted to send "from email@example.com" (using the firstname.lastname@example.org account) would this be possible?
I'm running myself in circles - if anyone can help, I'd be really grateful.
