Google Apps goes Gangnam style, all paid!! Wop wop!!
10th December 2012

Time for all us freeloaders and moochers to find some other super reliable FREE email service. Google Apps no longer is free. Although they will not close free accounts created earlier (maybe hoping we will shell out the $50 for each mailbox..ouch). Is the Google Apps paid version worth it? Definitely, if you can afford it.

Got this really nice letter in the mail?

Hello from Google,

Here's some important news about Google Apps but don't worry, there's no need for you to take any action. We just want you to know that we're making a change to the packages we offer.

Starting today, we're no longer accepting new sign-ups for the free version of Google Apps (the version you're currently using). Because you're already a customer, this change has no impact on your service, and you can continue to use Google Apps for free.

Should you ever want to upgrade to Google Apps for Business, you'll enjoy benefits such as 24/7 customer support, a 25 GB inbox, business controls, our 99.9% uptime guarantee, unlimited users and more for just $5 per user, per month.

You can learn more about this change in our Help Center or on the Enterprise Blog.

Thank you for using Google Apps.

Clay Bavor
Director, Google Apps

So the hunt begins for the new free (or low cost) email provider us web design guys can mooch from.

Cheers,
Ron
