Gmail for Business

Lee Odden     Google, Marketing Industry News

Google is taking beta subscription requests for hosted Gmail accounts using your company or organization’s domain name. Just login with your existing Google account or create a new one.

What you get:

Gmail – 2 gigabytes of storage and search tools that help users find information fast.
Control Panel – Easily manage user accounts, aliases and mailing lists.

Very interesting. This should increase the number of Gmail users by a significant sum. More maybe?

  5. That 2GB of storage is that per user or per company?
