My friend Anthony Mendez has crafted a brilliant set of tutorials about how to set up Google Apps. Why would you want to do that? Because you can continue to use your own email from your website, but use Google Mail’s powerful spam filter.
Now, it actually gets better because in addition to powering your own site’s email through the Google Mail system, you also get access to a calendar you can share, Google documents and a host of other utilities and applications. I’ve been using Google Apps in my business for some time now and I highly recommend you start, too.
Once you’ve signed up, keep digging. You’ll be amazed at that you can do.
