Can anyone recommend a good Google apps migration tool?

I am aware of this one: http://www.syscloudsoft.com/Online-Google-Apps-Migration.aspx, but $9 a pop is too expensive. I have several thousand to migrate.

We used the native Google migration products.  Google Apps Directory Sync to create the users and groups then Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange to move over all of the mail, calendar and contact items.  There are some limitations to the products, but we found them to more than serve our needs.  

We are a much smaller institution but found these tools along with a password sync tool to be key for a successful migration/deployment.

We used this tool: http://www.cloudsolutions.co.uk/resources/migration-tool/ Our migration went smoothly and was well worth the cost. -- Brad Christ Chief Information Officer Southern Oregon University ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
Hello all,

This summer, Hartwick College is migrating to Google mail. Previously we used Exchange/Outlook. We are working on documentation for some of the most commonly requested procedures. Users are wanting to do mail merge to email. I know there is a Google docs equivalent, and I sent a user a link to their instructions and was met with "What???".  I wondered if anyone who blazed this trail before us had adapted user instructions for this (or any other Gmail 'handouts') that they's be willing to share. Thanks.

Here's a quick guide that one of our staff members created, I believe as part of a class he taught: http://google.ncsu.edu/usinggoogleapps/mail-merge 

Good luck with the transition!

Hello Suzanne:  Feel free to browse our knowledgebase for “google” related documentation.  I think you will find useful information.  We went through that same process a couple of years ago.
