This really fills me with sadness. We're yet to get a date for migration,
but I was really hopeful that it would be painless.

our experience was that

1) a lot more spam was delivered to the inbox

2) a lot more email was incorrectly labeled as spam and not delivered

This has slowly improved on a per-mailbox basis with constant training via
"not spam" and "spam" marking via a daily quarantine email. I was in a
position to whitelist some security mailing lists, but thanks to google's
taking white listing as more of a suggestion than a fact that was only
partially successful.

And depending on how a list is configured it may not be possible to white
list it. I don't remember the details, but for example, the SANS lists
could not be white listed and google required white listing each sender
(and, as noted above, takes that more as a suggestion to deliver).

We are a Postini customer for spam filtering and have received our
notice that it’s time to transition to Google’s services. Has anyone
completed this transition yet? How did it go? Any gotchas or other words
of experience to pass along?
