Google Apps for Edu
One of our schools uses Google apps for edu, it got me thinking does anyone know where i might find out which country it stores emails in etc?

Pretty sure the answer is no, you can't. And the way it was explained to me is that there is no one drive/server/data farm with your data - it is dispersed around various facilities that could be anywhere. So in that sense "where is my email held" can't even be answered.

Hi Nathan did you pose this question because of data protection concerns? If so I suggest reading up on 'Safe Harbour'

Where is my organization's data stored?
Your data will be stored in Google's network of data centers. Google maintains a number of geographically distributed data centers (see location information). Google's computing clusters are designed with resiliency and redundancy in mind, eliminating any single point of failure and minimizing the impact of common equipment failures and environmental risks.
Access to data centers is very limited to only authorized select Google employees personnel.
