    Yes!  You should remove your old Exchange account.  In "Accounts," select your Exchange Email profile and click the minus button.

    I thought we were not going to be able to use Outlook on the Mac side?  Also, the migration of our old email will be done at a separate time, is that correct?

    Rob,

       Outlook for Mac can continue to check your email, however, calendar and contacts functions will not synchronize with the server. If you want calendar and contacts, you will need to use either the Google web interface or Apple's Mail, iCal, and Address Book.

    And will our current Calendar & contacts in Outlook be migrated to the Apple apps?

    If you have completed the instructions found in the answer below for migrating your data to the Google system, then your data will appear in the Apple apps once you configure your account in them.

    I had to use port 465 instead of 587 for the smtp server. I was receiving mail, but wasn't able to send it.
