Also, you can have 'all email to this domain' going to one account, so say, I can have 'livejournal@dragonfeathers.org', etc, all going to me.

Also, you can set it up so that 'mail.dragonfeathers.org' automatically goes to googlemail.

You can certainly do that. You can even have a set of user accounts and then have everything else go to one account.

Yeah, I set that up and was extremely disappointed that mail.mydomain.foo redirects to http://mail.google.com/a/mydomain.foo/ and not https://mail.google.com/a/mydomain.foo/. :( Why? WHY?! I don't want to use http to access my e-mail when I can use https. Unfortunately, going to https://mail.mydomain.foo/ simply results in going nowhere at all, so basically mail.mydomain.foo is totally useless. I would not recommend using it to any users.

E-mail, or web, or both?

I've had my domain's e-mail handled by Google since the very very early days of "gmail for your domain".

It's the web hosting part of it that's new to me. I'm not planning to use it for my main domain, but I am going to use it for some stuff.

They seem to be happily and successfully doing e-mail hosting, so I dispute that.

Also, up to 2Gb per account (up to 25 accounts) is free. That's up to 50Gb of e-mail storage, if you have 25 accounts.

The premiere thing is for upgraded service, not for basic service.
