A few weeks ago Google decided to end their free version of GMail, or as they referred to it, Google Apps for domains. If you are an existing customer you were grandfathered in, but otherwise you will now have to pay to use their email service (and spam filtering) with your own domain name.
Happily all is not lost. Microsoft recently released their new, free service of Outlook.com. It is a blatant attempt compete with GMail, and quite frankly, it’s great! It is nowhere near as cluttered and ad-centric as GMail and the spam-filtering is equal to Google’s.
Check it out at Outlook.com. The signup – switchover procedure takes all of about 15 minutes.
And on another note, our new, under-promoted Facebook page is quite lonely – if you have a chance, could you take a look and like us?
