The Death of Hosted Email

I have this sinking feeling that Google Apps has killed the hosted email business. While there are many providers still slinking around, they’re essentially zombies as Google Apps continues to gobble up more and more people and businesses.

I also think this is bad.

I’m hoping that the new Atmail Cloud offering will fill the needs that I have which is basically just mail, webmail, and ActiveSync so that I can get push mail to my iOS devices. If I’m not happy with it, then my next step is to run my own server and cobble together the pieces so that it will fulfill my needs.
