Since it's free, we could keep the Google Apps account running
indefinitely. However, as long there are users using the service, from
time to time we'll get support requests from them. As a matter of
professionality, I'd rather declare a service as unsupported than
disappointing users with a sloppy service level.

I've just sent a probe. Did you get it?

I'll try to assist, but I'm no expert of GMail because I've never used
it myself :-(

See my other message for an idea of how it could be done. Perhaps there
are better ways.
