Google Apps Gmail and legacy MS Exchange (SBS) 2003 Synchronisation

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We are seriously considering moving from our small MS SBS 2003 Server / MS Office environment ( 5 staff/users/PCs) to Google Apps

1. Any experience with this? Positive and importantly, negitive?

We are concerned about what would happen if internet access / google became unavailable.

We have been using various versions of MS Exchange for the past 12 years. From a comfort/safety point of view, and also because we wanty our historical emails ( our email is our filing system ).

2. Is it possible to use both Google Apps Email Soultion and to also use MS Exchange concurrently, I know this sounds weird. We woudl probable use Google but would find it reasuring to know that the same emails were appearing in MS Exchanges inbox

3. Is it possible to use MS Outlook connected to Gmail so that we get Outlooks features and local speed, or is this silly!

4. Is it possible to migrate all of our historic email over the last 12 years to Google Apps Gmail.
