Offer option for Yola to create the Google Applications Account for the URL that customer buys through Yola, an amount enough that Yola would make some profit.

Yola would adjust the MX records in Yola and complete the setup in the Google applications account (so that the user has emailmail account. The username and password could be the same as the one the user has for Yola.

Example, user would:
create a Yola account
create a website in Yola
buy the URL: www.joe.com
buy the feature of Yola creating the google email account

Then Yola would create the Google Applications account
Username would be joe@joe.com and Password would be 123
User now can send and receive email as joe@example.com
Yola would change the Yola username to joe@joe.com and password to 123

Then user could change password/username on both sites, to something more normal.

There could be a link to the gmail account right on the users Yola welcome page (the first page seen after the user logs in to Yola) or maybe have the link as a tab at the top of the page. Clicking on the link would open the google login page in another window, so the user would not leave the Yola website. Or instead of a link maybe have it as a tab at the top of the Yola page and gave gmail open up on a Yola page using frames.

Also, I searching the Internet I came across some kind of connection between Synthasite and Google Docs

Hi Jonathan

Thank you for this suggestion. The option to create email addresses associated with a domain which we currently have is our first implementation of this feature. We certainly want to look for ways to make it easier and more accessible for customers in future.

I will pass your suggestion on to our developers, and they can consider whether we could implement something along these lines, or some similar solution that would achieve the same results.

Thanks for such a quick response. The current email feature is very nice. Thank you for passing my ideas along to the programmers. I'm impressed and appreciative of Yola's quick response to feedback and rapid development of new features.
