    hello guys,

    i really couldnt find the relevant place to put this thread.

    i am trying to setup gmail as a hosted service...and im battling
    gmail support is absolutely pathetic for a company like google

    you phone...24hrs later they send you a mail...you reply...24 hours later you get a response...what a joke google wake up!!! its your products we trying to sell!!!

    anyways...

    i have an exchange server 2003 which im trying to migrate to gmail
    the first thing is to just get the mail working simultaneously with my existing email.

    i have the domain champion.ie setup and paid for (30 day trial) i can login with my admin account, i have created my users like [email protected]
    but how do i login with his mail account? as i said [email protected] i can login with, but the users i cant.

    any ideas?
    how do you access the mailboxes (gmail) of your created users...?

    any advice please

    Have you set up your domain on Gmail? You really can't run both simultaneously as the MX record will be pointing to the wrong place. Once you have your DNS and all of that good stuf set up to use Gmail there is normally not an issue.

    Login to mail.chanmpion.ie and you should be able to log in (do not put in the @chanpion.ie in the username). If you are set up as an admin you can manage email accounts from inside of your login. Every account needs to be authenticated before you can use it.

    hi rockn so i have all accounts setup. if you want duel delivery it works like this.
    the mx still points to your server and then each account forwards the mail into the gmail account

    i have one migration of 8GB going now and its taken 30 hours...i cant get any other migrations going as it
    says migration failed due to network error...now it was doing this last night and then just worked when i tried it again
    gmail support is useless!!! i wait 2 days for mail...pathetic

    any ideas?

    I would not even attempt a dual delivery, way too much stuff to get messed up. Why not just stop delivery to the Exchange server and only have new email to the new Gmail setup? Then you can just import the old stuff in with IMAP or some other process. Did you think there would be 24/7 full tech support with Gmail? It clearly states that they will only give you any sort of support if the email system is down and email is not being delivered. Who needs a 8GB mailbox....must be an owner.
