Hi All,

 

We have our students moved to Google Apps, more than a year ago, and are debating on moving employees over to Office365/live@edu, currently using MS Exchange 2003.  I would like to ask those individuals who have already or planning to move to this kind of split cloud environment.

 

My questions are:

1.       What were your reasons for having two separate e-mail environments?

2.       Are there any issues for users with this split (faculty/Staff and Students)

3.       Are there any mail routing issues (mail delays etc.)

4.       Is there a significant increase in administering 2 separate systems (Sys Admins)

5.       Are you comfortable with your decision or would you have done anything different.

 

Thanks in advance.
