Battle of the Domain Email Services

Anyone who runs a website most likely wants to have an email account featuring their domain name. You know, sort of like redwall_hp@whatevermydomainis.com. The question is: how should it be set up? I’m going to answer this question with the Battle of the Domain Email Services. What’s that? I’m going do a post for each of the contending ways to get email at your domain. As I post, points will be tallied. At the end, the results will be posted.

The contenders are:

  • Gmail For Your Domain (www.google.com/a/)
  • Plain old POP3 or IMAP
  • Squirrelmail
  • RoundCube Webmail (www.roundcube.net)

Windows Live Domain Mail has been disqualified for several reasons. 1. It’s Windows Live Mail Beta. Bleh! That’s worse than Horrible Hotmail. 2. It doesn’t work right in Firefox. 3. It’s really slow. 4. It doesn’t work very well unless you have a new computer.
