    Hi all, I have a very annoying problem. I was using Rackspace to host my email for my business. I have 4 mailboxes, 3 of them were on exchange and had rules set up to forward the right messages to the right person. I frequently get 2-19MB emails in one of them. Rackspace was having IMAP problems so I switched to 1and1 (terrible idea). 1and1 does not offer exchange mailboxes higher then 1GB (one of my inboxes has more than 2GB in it) so right now I am on their mailExchange, which does not offer the robust rules that exchange does. I am currently holding on by using outlook rules to forward the email. I have done research and I want to switch my business to google apps. I want to know what to do to minimize email downtime, (because I CANNOT lose any emails, and they have to get where they are supposed to go within the day) and if there is downtime how long will it be? also, will any emails be lost in the switch and what will happen to emails that I receive during the switch. Thank you in advance. (I receive the smallest volume of mail on the weekend between saturday 12am to sun 12pm)
