Well not much news on the aviation front, I've been doing real work at the office for the last couple of weeks. Been evaluating moving the six companies in the building from our own hosted Zimbra server to GSuite/GMail. General thoughts so far: AD/User Management: Active Directory integration for users/groups/distro lists/contacts, all seems to work well. We should be able to continue to manage the entire user base from a single location, which is nice. Side effect: Could even point some of the cloud services we use at Google's OAuth engine after this, instead of managing the users and permissions on those separately. AD Password Sync: Flawless. Big deal and not a single problem no matter how much we beat on it. Mail Migration: Initial migration of old mail is a bit of a pain. The devil is in the details. IMAP migration can't be used against a Zimbra server because it doesn't respond correctly with the message's original delivery date/timestamp, so all migrated mail looks like it "arrived" the day of the migration. Outlook and/or PST file migration gets that part right but dumps the mail headers which removes data that things like GMail's Jira integration use to know the message can be linked to a ticket system to display the stuff like the "Go to Ticket" button. Obviously the latter is less of a problem than the former, but admin migration of the mailboxes ahead of time was going to be done via IMAP and that's out... can't have the delivery date of 10,000 emails be "today". Ha. Folders vs Tags: The whole folder vs tags thing creates some weirdness and need to hand hold each person through straightening out their tags if they're going to stay using a "legacy" mail client like Outlook or Apple Mail.App, etc. IMAP Migration did this the cleanest of course. Bunch of top level tags of un-nested tags like "Inbox/Customer Issues" or stuff like that but workable for the legacy clients. Outlook / PST Migration makes more of a mess but they're all still there. Mobile Devices: iOS has some interesting limitations when attached natively to Google accounts. Biggest one is "Send As" functionally is busted. Can be tricked by adding up to two additional IMAP profiles to the same GSuite account but that's kinda dumb. Android, no problems at all... and... That's the way around them on iOS : Use the GMail App. Then you're essentially seeing what an Android user sees. (Actually you'd probably use the native stuff for your "primary" address and keep the App around for times when you need to reply as the other address.) Everything else: In general it "just works". Haven't really run into any major problems. Calendar imported right. Other stuff. Some Outlook features aren't supported like Categories but I suspect nobody will notice. Anyone been through this "fun" with a large organization (or six!) and seen any other Bad Things(TM)? Overall it looks like we are probably still a "go" for this. We're in late eval and other than the highly annoying IMAP Migration issue from Zimbra, it's not looking too bad. The benefits once moved are WAY higher than the problems seen thus far.
