    Ugh, this is going to be a fair bit of work.

    I sure hope this is reflected in their stock price soon...

    Yep, agreed, going to be a pain.

    I am pretty sure this is a small subset of users, many of whom will be forced to use the business starter plan.

    It is a very non-trivial number of small business owners and a larger tech savvy audience... Been on gmail for custom domains forever and have several accounts.

    The plan forward seems to be:

    - Need to start getting familiar with Google Takeout and may be other migration services
    - Export data
    - Do some domain and account f'ery
    - Import data to a consolidated upgraded domain with aliases of the old domains

    No clue how reliable the takeout service is..

    Will look at this and update post CNY.

    Need to start day drinking..

    I'm glad I already moved my parents' and my domains away from the free grandfathered Google accounts they'd been on for years - they still go to Gmail, but now via forwardemail.net...

    I ironically started looking into this a week ago.

    Services I've looked into are:

    - Anonaddy
    - 33mail
    - Simplelogin
    - Manyme

    I understand there are bunch of others out there.

    Might be worth looking at this - its in their free layer and they're not going away anytime soon.

    Seems like you are all OK now, as long as you meet certain criteria
