Postini Transition to Google Apps

Google is transitioning Postini services to the Google Apps platform. To prepare for this transition, we have built email security and archiving features into these 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

Google Apps email settings also work with non-Gmail mail servers such as Microsoft Exchange, so you don't need to switch to Gmail when transitioning from Postini to Google Apps.*

Visit this site to get the latest news on the Postini Transition project and to help you prepare for your transition.

Postini Transition Guide

The Postini Transition Guide provides step-by-step instructions for initiating your service transition and getting started with Google Apps and Google Apps Vault after your service transition is completed.

  • Before your transition
    For links to articles that will help you prepare for your transition, see Before your transition.
  • During your transition
    The steps for your service transition will vary depending on your Postini customer type:
  • After your transition
    If you have completed your transition, see After your transition for instructions on using Google Apps and Google Apps Vault.
