I'm looking for someone who has migrated their email from Outlook 2007 to Gmail (Google Apps).

We currently connect to a Pop3 server to bring the email down to Outlook.  I'll need to migrate about 10 accounts.  We'll continue to use Outlook most of the time, but want to synch with Gmail.

Our domain is setup in Gmail and I've done some testing with a temporary account.  When I ran the Gmail import utility, it created an Outlook.pst/inbox 'folder', etc. in my Gmail account.  Is there a way to have the Outlook inbox go directly into the Gmail inbox, etc?

As far as I can tell, there are 3 steps.  What order would you suggest I do the following and am I missing anything?

1) Put Gmail IP address into our current email provider to begin forwarding email to Gmail
2) Run Google Apps Migration Tool to upload emails to Gmail
3) Run Google Apps Sync to synchronize emails to Outlook.

Thanks in advance for any help given.
