How much time would it take an attacker to figure out your password? Maybe that's not a question you've ever asked yourself, but it's time you did. For many of you, the answer is very, very little time at all. Read more »

Lots of questions coming in about what we're going to be converting, so this e-mail aims to answer those. Data conversion will begin April 1 and continue through the week of Spring Break. Beginning April 1, all new mail will be delivered to Google instead of SOGo.
We will be automatically converting all of your mail, including that which is stored inside of your Folders (ie. Cabinet).
The exceptions to this are
1. Messages larger than 25MB
2. Messages flagged as potential viruses
3. Messages in your Trash folder Read more »
So far we've covered the Google Apps in general, E-mail, and Contacts.
In today's video we're turning our attention to Google Calendar. If
you're already a user of SOGo calendar, you know how handy it is to keep
all of your appointments, meetings, and even to-dos in one electronic
container. Google's Calendar will make your life even easier.
In addition to what's shown in the quick peek video below, you'll want
to take advantage of many other features:
* Text-messaging integration (even without a "smart phone")
* Daily e-mailed agendas
* Un-Send! Read more »
Note: Lots of questions after my last e-mail about when we are
switching to Google Apps for Education. We will be switching mail,
calendar and address books during Spring Break - so we are just weeks away!

useful format for us. Thankfully, SOGo does not suffer from that Read more »
Many of you already use Gmail, Google's free consumer e-mail
service. With Google Apps for Education, we get Google Mail, which
is all but identical to the Gmail you may be used to. Some upgrades
1) Auto-complete of all NHUSD names and addresses when composing.
This works the same as (though faster than) SOGo for automatically
completing NHUSD e-mail addresses.
2) Google Message Security (GMS), powered by Postini. GMS blocks
spam and viruses from getting to your Inbox. GMS works even better Read more »
Over the next several weeks, I'll be sending out information to make
it easier to manage the switch from SOGo to Google Apps for
Education. For the first couple of messages, I'm going to focus on
why we've selected Google, and what's in it for you.
