Google Exploring Personal E-mail Domains

US Internet search portal Google is testing a service that allows people to customize e-mail accounts with their names or other personal touches.
Students at a community college in Silicon Valley were invited by Gmail product manager Stephanie Hannon on Monday to make their own Gmail account domain names, the part of an e-mail address that follows the “at” sign.
Students at San Jose Community College can customize addresses with their own names, school teams, or other personal touches, Hannon said in a blog entry at the Google website.
“We’re testing a new service with the school by hosting Gmail accounts with SJCC domain addresses (like plus admin tools for efficient account management,” Hannon wrote.
Hannon left an online invitation for other schools, businesses or organizations to contact Google about crafting their own Gmail domain addresses. – AFP
