New Gmail (Google Hosted) rocks!
Google hosted email through your domain

 6:02 pm on Jul 19, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hi, just wanted to share my excitement over the new Gmail feature with anybody who is experiencing the same. This new feature really rocks: I now can use my email address (firstname.lastname@mycompany.com) and run it through Gmail. Also, I can set up user accounts. This is terrific!

I believe they have had this functionality for a while. It is nice, but it's definitely not transparent. For instance, if you send an email to someone using Outlook, then it shows up as being from "mygmailaccount@gmail.com on behalf of OtherAccount [otheraccount@otherdomain.net]".

If anyone is interested in the technical stuff, the headers are:
From: OtherAccount <otheraccount@otherdomain.net>
Sender: mygmailaccount@gmail.com

So while it is a nice feature, it's probably not a great solution if you want to present a professional, corporate appearance, IMHO.

I think you are confusing something. I'm talking about 'Gmail for your Domain'. (google.com/hosted)
It requires you to change your MX-Records. Have you done this or are you just talking about Gmail?

Nope, I was confused, talking about something totally different. Definitely going to have to look into that.
