Since this is a hosted service I was very interested in the service level agreement. Here's the link. Unfortunately...
...it didn't work. Could be a deal breaker for some.
Here's the administrator account setup. Looks easy enough. One big problem: I don't have a domain name. The help page says there's an option to get one if I sign up for Google Apps Standard and then upgrade to premier. For giggles I proceed with the domain name I used to own.
A pretty snazzy dashboard. Again though I have to verify my domain--which I don't have--or get a new one.
This verification gets a little complicated for sole proprietors or anyone that wants Google apps sans the ads.
More dashboards. Very Google-ish with a simple interface.
Stuck in the domain loop.
These settings will be swell once I find a domain name.
