Important: Google Apps for Teams ending in September, changes
happening with your Google Apps for Teams account

Hello Google Apps for Teams user,

Our records show that your 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 username, your Google Apps for Teams account will
become a personal Google Account with a temporary username, 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 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 and, instead of the /a/ 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

for Teams, please see the Help Center.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
