Customers will continue to receive email security and archiving services for use with their existing email servers through the Google Apps platform and Google Apps Vault**. Google will manage the transition for our customers and they will not have to replace existing email servers with Gmail.
No immediate action is required by customers. Transitions are expected to start in early 2013 and will continue throughout the course of the year. We will contact customers 60-90 days in advance of their transition eligibility with information on how to make the transition.
* Transitioning services include Google Message Security (GMS), Google
Message Discovery (GMD), and Google Message Encryption (GME).
** Google Message Discovery customers using Lotus Notes/Domino Server will not be supported by Google Apps Vault.
