    Manish this service is free !!!

    Many hosting’s dont provide mail free and even if they do they give only 2 mail ids for a domain free . Here you can register up to 50 for free and the reliability of google as well !!

    Well, this was a very good step-by-step explanation and would definitely help the novice users as well as those who have not used it yet. I have been using it since last few months and so far it works great. Using Gmail, Yahoo etc. does not look professional and hence creating personalized email id using our own registered domain is always preferable.

    Thanks for sharing Sandeep. :)

    I am using this great free service for my blog. Google Apps Email service is better than the one we get in cPanel.

    I have been using this for long…really a nice service from google. One thing you can redirect this long domain to small one as mail.yoursite.com by editing the cname to ghs.google.com.
