I'm a freelance web designer and, being really impressed with Gmail and Google Apps in general, I want to recommend this to all my clients. (Say no to spam and weekend phone calls about setting up POP clients!)
My only problem is this: I have no problem with $5 a month for each of their accounts but I'd like to have my own email at their domain.
With Google Apps I have
firstname.lastname@example.org. For a client they will have
email@example.com. But I'd like to have
firstname.lastname@example.org that forwards straight to my
email@example.com and I don't want to pay another $5 a month for this! (I'll be doing this for many clients so it would add up a lot.)
This is just for doing the basics first steps of SEO—submitting websites to Google, Google maps, Yell.com etc. It's just much easier if I have
firstname.lastname@example.org for verification, and I don't want to ask the client to be forwarding me emails.
Also, I need to be able to send emails and reply with this
This is the only thing that's putting me off using Google Apps for everyone!
I think I can do this if I'm in charge of all their domains on Google Apps and turn all the
buswell@s into aliases?
