    Google Apps and MS Exchange

    We've got an Exchange Server, which we use for email & calandering.

    We're also just setting up Google Apps for domains so staff can use Google Docs & Youtube.

    Is there anyway of integrating our MS Exchange with Google Apps? I invisage setting up the "GMAIL" features on the domain, but I'm completely stumped as to how to get MS Exchange to connect to the Google Hosted email "upstream"

    I don't think this post is making much sence, but has anyone done this?

    We use Exchange and Google Apps, but we turn off Gmail for those users who have Exchange accounts.

    If you have Gmail set up as well as providing Exchange accounts, they will be separate mailboxes. Only one will receive mail (unless you auto-forward to the other), and email sent from one won't appear in the sent box of the other.

    Why do you want to have both?

    Off the top of my head:

    • Single sign on
    • Public Folders
    • Tasks that sync with Outlook

    Google certainly does single sign on (with active directory), and it definitely replicates all the functionality of public folders (at least in our old 2003 exchange version).The last time I looked the outlook sync tool for google definitely would syncronise outlook calendars. Not sure about tasks, google apps has it's own tasks so i'd be surprised if it didn't.

    I should have emphasised that by 'single sign-on', I meant automatic single sign on, i.e. when you open up OWA on a school machine you don't have to sign in again. I don't think Google Apps can do that without a third-party solution, but if it can I would dearly love to know how. Same for Public Folders; I haven't found a way to set up a shared folder I can access from within Gmail.

    It doesn't. Tasks are a weak point in Gmail, I think they were a late addition and even Android doesn't sync them.

    P.S. Sorry this has gone a bit off topic!
