Moving Mail from GMAIL back to Exchange 2010..

I have a new client using Gmail as their primary source of mail, they have an exchange server 2010 and they would like to move back to exchange, is it possible to leave mail with gmail and have everything route into exchange? Looking for a simple solution. I have moved mail from exchange but never back to exchange and just want to make sure there is not an easier way than migrating data back..

They prefer the functionality of exchange  with outlook 2010 over gmail.

Thanks in advance.

" is it possible to leave mail with gmail and have everything route into exchange?"

No unfortunately, if you will be moving back to exchange, you will need to create new mailboxes in exchange for the users, and export the mail from gmail and import into the newly created mailboxes in exchange. There are 3rd party apps that could help with that part of it, or just use Outlook and export the gmail mail data to a pst file, and then import that into exchange.

How many users are we talking about?

If it's only a few,  connect outlook to Gmail, PST the mail, change the mail flow back to your the Exchange sever, connect Outlook to Exchange import the PST files
