There’s a potential light at the end of the tunnel for those who have Google Apps at work and GMail at home. I always thought the artificial wall between the two was part of the plan to make hosted email more palatable to the Enterprise.

As today’s SXSW panel on Gmail came to a close, the panelists revealed one last juicy tidbit: they’re working to resolve the problems with multiple namespaces that users have to deal with. The team didn’t get specific — they simply repeated that they have to deal with the same problems, as they have “@google.com” accounts for work and standard Gmail accounts for personal use. And they know it’s a pain.
