A few weeks ago, I posted my intention to move to Gmail all my email accounts. However, there was a problem when sending emails from a non-Gmail domain. Some email clients, like Outlook, add the “on behalf of’” string to those emails.
So today I’m moving all my email to Gmail. The process is really simple:
- Sign up into Google Apps for your domain
- Create your email addresses in Google Apps
- Change the MX records for email (Dreamhost even has a button to update them for you)
Because I plan to not use Outlook at all, I need to upload all my existing email messages to Gmail. Google has a tool called Google Email Uploader to do so. It can take a while to upload the email.
Also note that emails bigger than 16 MB are not uploaded.
Everything is going just fine so far.
