    Just running through the next issue, IMAP will obviously work fine for the emails, do you sync your calendars with outlook? I know 1 member of staff who will complain if he has to go to 2 places for emails/calendar.

    I don't see why not - you can publish calendars in google apps so could do it via ics files or you could do it via Getting started with Google Calendar Sync - Google Calendar Help

    Agreed, though got Thunderbird linked to both my embc and google mail (home) and integrated google calendars through the lightning plug-in.

    1 thing that i didn't think would be such an issue is the conversation view of emails
    One of the main features IMO.

    Has anyone got the gmail calendars fully working with outlook ? Every bit of info i can find requires an exchange server inside our domain to do this, but our LEA will only allow port 80 traffic so we never bothered and the reason we use gmail. The connecter apps helped but for 'tasks' i still need to use the webpage calendar. I'd say about 140 of 150 staff prefer to use a browser anyway.
    We have been using it for 4 months and the staff love it. We plan to issue headsets soon and use google talk internally to replace some phones. We had to turn off the docs feature for the pupils though, took them about 15 minutes to work out they could open a word doc, invite their friends to collaborate and use it as a chatroom.

    Although I have not got round to testing docs I have setup separate Domains for adults and pupils this should (but not tested) let me turn of share for the pupils only.

    Maybe someone that has used it for a while can give some pointers on calendars issue.

    Here is a bit on google which points out the wonderful bits, and at the bottom are some of the calendar issues.
    Google Calendar vs. Outlook - Gmail Help

    Most of the advanced intigration needs you to host an exchange server to use outlook. Without exchange you need some extra syncing apps and things like tasks in the webpage calendar don't work from outlook. But the apps are allways changing so maybe a better one will turn up soon for us stuck without exchange.
