What's different if I purchased Postini online?
If you purchased Postini online through a web portal rather than through a Postini sales representative, your transition to Google Apps will be different in the following ways:
Online customers purchased Postini via an online web portal, using Google Checkout (now Google Wallet) for payment and ordering. As an online customer, you pre-paid for Postini via credit card with an annual commitment.
The following Postini products were sold online: Google Message Security (GMS), Google Message Discovery (GMD), and Google Message Filtering (GMF).
Online customers who ordered GMS and GMD will be participating in the transition to Google Apps starting in 2013.
The GMF product is no longer supported, and GMF customers will not be invited to transition. GMF customers will receive a notice of non-renewal by email and/or postal mail, and their services will be terminated at their next renewal date.
Online customers will receive the same product features as other customer types participating in the transition. In almost all respects, other details contained in the Postini Transition Resource Center apply.
