Google Apps Migration how much can you do before finally switching over?
I'd like the process to be as smooth as possible, with little disruption to the end users - so how much can I do before finally switching those MX records over?
Up to now I've signed up, got directory sync working (ADexplorer is great for this) but not yet imported everyone (todays little job) - what next?

if the users want to use outlook, you can deploy the google apps sync for outlook msi before switching. once the mx records are done and the upload complete you can have the users (or do it for them) run the sync tool and enter credentials to setup outlook for google apps.
I've been looking for a better way to push default settings for Google apps to outlook clients but this seems to be only way. Unless someone can enlighten me, in which case i'd be grateful.
good luck with the import. I'm finding multiple errors in mine but the planned switch over is next week still.

I'm considering proposing that we dump using outlook, SSO would be nice but they'll just have to get used to logging in twice
they already have to log into the MIS and VLE with different passwords
Sync seems to work fine, once its all set up I'll rarely have to sync it again except in summer - just helped save a lot of typing
