This is way cool.
You can now setup Gmail to send from any email address you own. Of course, to prevent spoofing (spamming and phishing’s close cousin), you have to go through an email-verification process to actually claim the address you’re setting up.
Once set up, you can choose among the “from” addresses on-the-fly when composing email.
So I’ve now setup my default “from” email address to jangelo (at) racoma . net. And I’ve setup my server to forward all emails to that address to my Gmail. I’ll never run out of mailserver space because Gmail gives you 2.5 GB (and growing).
Gmail can actually be the central point of all your email communications.
Just another step closer to Google’s world dominance. 🙂
