Now that you’re set up, let your pilot users know how they can sign in to their Google Apps accounts.
Send these instructions to your pilot users (replace “your_domain” with your own organization’s domain name):
Pilot users can begin using Gmail right away. Your users will receive emails in Gmail but the email address won’t change. Sign in to your Admin console and click Set up Gmail in the wizard at the top of your screen to get guided help to do this. Show me the steps now.
If you want your pilot users to test Gmail but continue to receive email in their current inbox, you can set up dual delivery. With dual delivery, you won’t have to change your MX records at your domain host. Learn about dual delivery
If you'd rather access email in Microsoft Outlook® instead of the Gmail web interface, you can install our plug-in for Outlook. You also sync email with many other desktop email programs (such as Apple Mail) using IMAP.
Choose a small number of pilot users to test the migration tools and import their old emails, calendar events, and contacts into Google Apps. You can migrate data directly from your legacy server, or let users migrate their own data.
During your trial, you can sync your Google Apps mail, contacts, and calendar data with your Android, iPhone, BlackBerry®, or Windows mobile device.
Start using the seamless integration of Gmail, Calendar, and Hangouts for your meetings, or collaborate together in Docs, Sheets, and Slides using Drive.
