Migrate Maildir to Gmail

Recently it was time to refurbish our email infrastructure. For a very long time I was hosting everything for myself, but things don’t get easier and over time even the spam filters couldn’t catch up. Therefore I looked into a number of hosted services, and in the end settled with Google Gmail.

End of last year I ran a test, migrated one of my domains over to Gmail and tried out if Gmail offers all the required functionality. As with every change, not everything works flawlessy, but mostly I found ways to get things working. As example we have different domains, several users, multiple identities (one per domain), other servers (like a webserver) can create emails as well (needs to play well with SPF and DKIM), a number of different email programs, mobile support and more.
