So were being forced to move from the cloud to in house for security reasons (big brother audit) so I'm looking for ways to move all out email, doc's, calendar and mailing groups out.

I know I can IMAP out the email to an outlook client but that's going to take some doing for all "aging" non computer literate users, I personally have never looked much at exchange but also something we have no control in, so is there a way to pull all the users data into exchange for now?

    unfortunately both the suggestions miss the marks, being I have more than just mailbox information to deal with and the end users know nothing more than there own little computer world.

    best items i can find migrate INTO Google apps not out of, think google has nutted down the ability to migrate into rather well but even then its only mail server information, they have added more to the game moving out with the addition of "docs" and such.

    I'm combating this challenge by scripting it out, , its dirty and a bit tedious but it seems to work.  unless anyone else has some suggestions I will close this topic off

    well after a lot of trial and error I got er done and everything in tack.

    If nothing else this experience has shown me there is a need for folks that try out the cloud experience and find out its not right for them or get told they cant do such any longer, need some tools for their administrators to do such things
