About the Postini Transition to Google Apps
Over the past year, we have built similar Postini email security and archiving features into these Google Apps services:
- Google Apps for Business / Government / Education
A professional suite of hosted email, calendar, and collaboration services
- Google Apps Vault
Archiving and discovery services for email
With this transition, you will receive comparable email security, protection, and archiving, but through the more robust Google Apps platform.
Google Apps email settings also work with on-premise mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes, so you don't need to switch to Gmail when transitioning from Postini to Google Apps.*

Before you can begin your transition to Google Apps, you will receive a series of email communications from Google with instructions about your transition.
Starting in Q1 2013, we will send emails with more details on the transition, and with links to the terms and conditions for using the services and the Postini Transition Amendment. You'll be able to sign these agreements via online forms, and you'll need to sign them before your renewal date. You'll have 60-90 days to complete your transition once you receive your transition invitation notice.

Note: If you do not want to transition to the Google Apps platform, see the Postini FAQs for instructions on ending your service.
No. You don't need to make any changes to your Postini service or sign up for a Google Apps account. Your Postini service will continue as usual until your transition begins. For more information, see the Transition FAQs.
