    Live@Edu or Google Apps

    Anyone in a Birmingham school using either Live@Edu or Google Apps for student email? We want to give some of our students access to email but don't want to go down the Zimbra route.

    Went down the Live@Edu route several months ago and really like it.

    Generally very reliable and easy to setup and maintain.

    What did you use for your domain? Did you use your school web address or buy a new one.

    Used our school domain and just transferred the MX record.

    Have you looked at the KB on Link2ICTs site? They have it listed how to do it now and they are quite willing to help.
