Migrating a Family to Google Apps from Gmail, Thunderbird, Outlook and others: The Definitive Guide

The migration is complete. The Hanselman Family has moved to Google Apps. Why? Here’s why:

  • I trust them (more or less)
  • I’m smart (I think), but I’ve recently lost 3 years of a family member’s email. Backups are hard
  • It’s clean and easy
  • Family members now have 10 gigs of space vs their previous 50 megs

However, we had a complex setup, as I assume most families do. Or at least, most Geek Families. This includes not just my wife, but also parents, brothers, cousins, in-laws, etc. Being IT for the family is hard. I’ve changed the names to protect the innocent, but all the tech is real — via Scott Hanselman
