Google Apps (GA) known issues (and issues compared to our current email system)

  • Lost, deleted, and purged email message will not be restored by Google.

  • You cannot share email folders with other users. You can however share the entire account with another user. "Mail Settings" => "Accounts" => "Grant access to your account:"
