Embarrassment reducing new message notifications

The latest GoogleMail feature is :

Embarrassment reducing new message notifications  "Ever replied to a message only to find out that someone sent a better, smarter reply right before you? Now, if someone sends a reply while you're in the middle of reading a conversation (or replying to it), you'll get a notification that a new message has arrived. Click "update conversation" to see what you’ve missed."

You see there are benefits in letting a third party such as Google have access to all your emails !

Google App Hosting and admin emails

http://www.google.com/support/a/bin/answer.py?answer=33389&hl=en

The Google Apps Team automatically monitor abuse@yourdomain.com and postmaster@yourdomain.com to ensure that they can properly address all reports of spam, abuse, and technical issues.

If you'd like a copy of messages sent to abuse@yourdomain.com and postmaster@yourdomain.com, create email lists for both addresses, and add yourself as a recipient:

  • abuse @ your.domain     Email list     2 recipients   Google Support,your-admin-user
  • postmaster @ your.domain    Email list     2 recipients   Google Support,your-admin-user

Since abuse and postmaster are reserved aliases, you won't be able to use them as usernames or nicknames. If you'd also like to trap emails sent to admin and webmaster click on User Accounts chose your-admin-user and create an aliases for admin and webmaster by adding nicknames for admin and webmaster !
