Hey Jeff - I don't see on that link where it states that Postini is
included. I see it states that it includes "...one of the best spam
blockers in the business..." but nothing about Postini. I've been told by
our Postini Rep (Excel Micro) that Postini is separate from and not used by
Google Apps. Has anyone been told differently?
