Hello Google Apps for Teams user,
Our records show that your firstname.lastname@example.org address is a Google Apps
for Teams account. Google Apps for Teams allowed those with a verified business
or school email address to use Google Apps and collaborate on Google Docs,
Google Calendar, and Google Talk without needing to go through their IT
department or domain administrator for support.
Today we’re announcing that we will be officially shutting down Google Apps
for Teams beginning on September 4, 2012.
When this happens, your Google Apps for Teams account will become a personal Google Account.
- If you already have a personal Google Account with the same
email@example.com username, your Google Apps for Teams account will become
a personal Google Account with a temporary username,
firstname.lastname@example.org. Your existing personal Google Account, which
you might have used to access YouTube or Blogger, will not change.
- If you have only one account with the email@example.com username, the
username may not change, but it will still become a personal Google Account.
Whether your username changes or not, you don't have to do anything, because
this change will happen automatically. We'll let you know by email when your
Google Apps for Teams account becomes a personal Google Account.
After the change, you’ll still be able to access your Docs, Sites, and
Calendar data. However, you'll need to use the regular Google sign-in pages such
as http://www.google.com/docs and http://www.google.com/sites, instead of the /a/domain.com URLs
you had previously been using. Please make sure to update your bookmarks.
If you are a Google Sites user, you may need to take further action. We'll
email you instructions with what to do with the Sites that you own.
If you'd like more information about the changes coming to Google Apps for
Teams, please see the Help Center.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
The Google Apps Team
