myDestiny Cable Internet Switches to Google Apps

When Destiny Cable was hacked last year, they remained quiet. No advisories or announcements from them. During this time, I suggested that they should consider Google Apps to replace their current and unreliable email system. Well, they seem to like the idea so I took the liberty of making a web 2.0ish logo for Destiny's Start Page.
First stage was to import the internal email addresses to Google Apps then the subscribers would be next. I believe the email addresses of Solid Broadband Corporation's employees are already on the Google Apps system. After a year, Destiny is now ready to switch their email system to Google.
To Our Most Valued Subscribers,
Great news from MyDestiny Broadband Internet!
On September 30, 2008, Tuesday, we will be transferring our E-Mail System to Google (GMail)
What are the advantages?
> Google guarantees secured Mail transactions
> Aside from GMail, it also comes with features like Calendars, News, Weather, Google Docs, and many more.
> GMail has a reliable virus-scan.
> And an advanced SPAM filter. All unwanted and unsolicited E-mails will be thrown into one folder.
Will the transfer affect my E-mail access through Mail Client? (Outlook Express, Microsoft Outlook, Windows Mail)
> Yes, it will. But we will be sending User-Friendly instructions on how set it up before September 30.
If you have questions or clarifications, please do not hesitate to email us back at helpdesk(AT)mydestiny.net
Thank you very much,
MyDestiny Broadband Internet
I've been using Google Apps on AMA microsystems, GameOPS and our Bengero Family email. So far, it's more secure, faster and better than Microsoft's Live Domains.
I just hope the guys at Solid Broadband don't f*ck up. PLEASE DISABLE CONTACT SHARING BY DEFAULT. If not, that's one hell of a user privacy disaster.
