Google announced user managed storage today. “Hallelujah!” I told my IT manager.
But WAIT, extra storage can’t be applied to a user’s email account?! This is totally puzzling. Is it because one of the primary differences (and drivers for upgrades) between Google Apps Premier and the free version is email storage capacity? Fine, then limit storage upgrades to premier edition customers (who are already paying) and let them expand _their_ email storage.
This is huge pain for us, with 5-10 users who are constantly hitting 100%, whose email accounts then need to be thinned out using various annoying and tedious techniques.
Wasn’t the gmail promise that we’d never have to delete emails?
