Google announced yesterday new services and pricing based on their Postini message filtering service. The service sounds great, and I’ve been looking at moving away from my current mail filtering service for a couple months now. Pricing starts out at only $3.00 per user per year. I did a little checking around, and verified that I can add domain aliases and user aliases and that it looks like they can be tied to a single $3.00 account.
That is exactly like what I need. I have a bunch of domains, and use several email addresses at each one that all forward to a single Inbox. For $3.00 a year, it sounds like a great savings over my alternate plan which was creating my own MailScanner box. Plus with Google, I won’t have to worry about redundancy, or keeping my own filtering up to date.
Perfect, so I went to sign up. I put in my domain name, agreed to the TOS, then put in my credit card information and hit submit:
Oops, looks like something went wrong there. That’s not the best way to instill confidence into your new customers.
