What’s new in Google Apps?
Google writes – The new mail migration feature makes it easier for organizations to get started on Google Apps Premier and Education Editions and give their old email new life — in many cases, that email is sitting in storage, covered with metaphorical dust and difficult to search. Administrators use a self-service wizard to easily and securely transfer existing email data from an IMAP server over to users’ Gmail accounts on Google Apps.
