First off, congratulations to the WordPress team for recently hitting the one meeeeellllion blog mark. This is a great achievement for WordPress and another milestone for the whole blogosphere.

We were also thrilled to see that WordPress now recommends Google Apps for custom-domain email accounts to bloggers who have their own internet domains. This means that bloggers who use WordPress can send and receive email for free with Google Apps on the same domain where they publish their WordPress blogs.

If you don't happen to be one of WordPress' million bloggers but want fully customized email accounts and much more, Google Apps will work for you too. You can use Google Apps on an existing domain, or register a new domain when you sign up.
