I recently posted a thread regarding sharing my Google Calendar with my partner and employees (ID: 38718553) and although I have always tried to avoid monthly fees, the advice that Expert arober11 gave me was good and Google Apps seems cool enough for the exception.
However I have ran my own mail server for years (most of which I have been the only active client). Now with the current setup (see attached image), I know I have a loop going and I know for sure that I need to take action on my server.
Now that I have Google Paid Apps For Business I'm thinking it may be a good idea to point my mail server to Google and point my client back to my server and leave the last MX record (no-ip.com) set to mail.apelectricservices.com.
This way all my eggs are not in 1 basket and if my Google Apps account goes down (unlikely I know) I still have my mail server running.
The problem is that I'm not sure how to do it or if its the best idea.
I'm just now installing the Google Outlook Sync so I'm not sure how I will like the new profile on Outlook.
How should I handle this?
