Google Apps Email Overview

November 28th, 2009

Google Apps Email is a free mail service provided by Google. It supports POP3 and IMAP, and can be used as a webmail client.

You will see the Gmail logo when you access Google Apps Email, but those two mail services are not the same. Here are the most important differences between Gmail and Google Apps Email:

– With Google Apps Email, your email addresses use your domain name (not @gmail.com). Thus, you can have an email address like user@example.com

– Unlike Gmail, in Google Apps Email your usernames can have dashes (-). So, you can have my-name@example.com.

– To retrieve a lost Google Apps Email password, you must contact your email administrator (the owner of the account).

Google Apps Email supports almost all popular mail service options – mail forwarding, mail filtering, autoresponders, mail attachments. You can also import your address book from a CSV file.

Another great feature is the multi-language support. You can have your webmail interface in your own language!

Once you register for Google Apps and activate Email, you will be able to access your mailbox using a URL in the following format:

http://mail.google.com/a/example.com
