I mean, really, can you do a worse job in explaining people what they need to do?
I’m a happy GMail user, and I mainly use my domain for email (and one static page), so Google Apps seems like a perfect way forward to me.
EMail migration should be easy – re-direct the MX records, and everything should be fine.
– is there a way to define a catchall? I have about 10 email addresses to care for, and I do not want to lose any email after the switch.
– all my current addresses are on different GMail accounts already – is there a way to pull the mail, address book, contact list etc. over? This should be easy, right?
The web page is harder. I have placed the html file to verify ownership, but now I’m lost. The GoogleApps page has instructions to change CNAME data for different hosters, but my service provider doesn’t offer me that kind of interface. Isn’t there an easy way to transfer the whole domain to, say, GoDaddy automatically? What’s the right process to do that without losing emails?
Here’s an opportunity for a service offered by Google. If I, the prototype early adopter person, can’t figure this out, many others will be unsure as well.
