Can any experts throw some light on the current status of Google Postini services being transitioned to Google Apps. We have known this was to be happening sometime but I am being advised that Google have made several attempts to transition and have failed but then still shutdown (at least one) of its Postini Servers.
This is creating massive problems for my ISP (our customers use exchange mailboxes protected by Postini)
Our ISP reports that Google gave about 2 weeks notice that their accounts were transitioning. Emergency preparation was made and the transition began but failed. Google reported nothing but still shut the Postini side down. Our ISP reports the same thing happening several times and only after considerable high level communications did the service resume. Only to be shut down again the next time the transition was attempted.
I would have thought that this level of failure would be being reported on globally but I can find no high profile references .. errr trying to Google them, surprise! surprise!
I'd like to know if anyone confirm that Google appear to be grossly mis managing this transition. It is possible of course that our ISP has miss managed this and is now trying to shift the blame. The situation is getting quite serious as we have about 200 mail boxes over about 50 domains. (all different firms)
Can anyone give some more info, confirm, or deny the Google behaviour
