Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Email on my own domain (godaddy based)

Ok so I figured out my problem after a call to customer support. It was actually a lot simpler than I thought. There's 1 email included with each domain and that stays free all year. The options that cost more where for additional email addresses. Also he told me how to login to the email without going through their site and my account on it.

    My personal recommendation is to use Google Apps for Domains

    It's free for the first...10 or so email accounts (which is actual, real email inboxes; you can set up an unlimited number of aliases for a single account or use throwaway [whatever]@yourdomain.com addresses that would be routed to a single inbox)


    here's a guide, and during config it'll even tell you what to do specifically since GoDaddy is your registrar

    I think it's 50 these days with the free variant, actually. I don't think I have anything unusual going on with mine.
    It is a very nice service, though.

    What if this weren't a rhetorical question?

    Hmm. Could have sworn I received an email from Google that they were changing the number of free users on a domain, but that existing accounts would get to keep their current upper limit.

    Ahaha, found it
    As of May 10, any organization that signs up for a new account will be required to use the paid Google Apps for Business product in order to create more than 10 users. We honor our commitment to all existing customers and will allow you to add more than 10 users to your account for dancatchpole.com at no additional charge, based on the limit in place when you joined us.

    I just switched a few weeks ago. I got tired of having me@mydomain forward stuff to my Gmail account and then have Gmail fake send headers from me@mydomain, and wanted to set it up properly.

    I'm using Google Apps as well with my domain as my Droid was giving me fits properly syncing e-mail with my regular domain e-mail. Doing it through Google makes that run much, much smoother. Plus now I've got ready to go calendar etc. functionality. Highly recommend it (was pretty easy to setup as well).

    Yeah, using Google Sync with iOS & Android is aces. Syncs all my Google Apps stuff with my phone and iPad, including all of my Gmail contacts so I never have to worry about losing them if I ever have to restore/replace my gadgets.

    Not sure if I'll even bother moving anything to iCloud since everything hums along so nicely already. I've set up GApps on at least two domains and it's always been a breeze.


    edit: also, that article I linked to is about four years old; a lot of the complaints in the comments have been resolved/clarified as Google has rolled out those features and functions to both Google account and Google Apps for Domain accounts.

    I stand corrected! And probably should have remembered that.
