Google Apps Tips :: Moving your Zimbra Briefcase

If you stored files in your Zimbra Briefcase, you'll need to download them and move them across to your Network Folder or upload them to Google Docs if you want to be able to access them online. If you don't need to access them online, you can of course simply save them to your local computer drive.

You'll find instructions below for downloading your Zimbra Briefcase files, or you can watch the video tutorial Moving your Zimbra Briefcase to Google Docs.

Google Apps:: Unhiding Spam, Trash, & All Mail

There are three labels (folders) that Google has hidden by default. You're likely to use these labels frequently. We'll show you how to unhide them. 

Spam - Google Apps does its own spam filtering. Anything Google believes is Spam it places in the Spam label. If you don't delete them, they will be purged after 30 days.

Trash - Anything you delete goes in the Trash. You can empty the trash whenever you feel like it. Once a message is in Trash, Gmail will delete it in 30 days.

With Google Groups you can create and manage your own mailing lists right from the Google Apps screen.
