    Default Expired Google Apps for Business

    Hey all,

    Recently setup google apps for someone as a trial. They imported their mail and everything and all was well. However the trial expired and we can no longer log in to the email. They decided just to use normal gmail, the perks of business not justifying the cost. So I thought I would import all the mail and contacts into a normal gmail account BUT it seems the only way it will let me do this is pay the US$5 to liven the account up again. If I have to, I'll pay it but it seems very dumb that google would do this.

    Have I just missed something or is this how google plays now?

    So freeloaders (like me ) can continue using it for free, but users who have been paying, but can no longer justify the cost are not allowed to drop back to the free version. That doesn't make a lot of sense.
    Intel Core i5-3470 CPU
    8GB DDR3 RAM
    1TB HDD
    AMD Radeon HD 6870 graphics card
    Enermax Tomahawk II 500W PSU
    Antec 300 case
    Win7 Pro (Action Pack :D)

    surprisingly quick even without an SSD

    What about exporting them say to Google Docs/Drive to import. But may need to find/build a script from Google App scripts. Or try their Apps Contact Sync.The other way, possibly, is to implement their Contacts AP1.

    Can you get into the admin page? It will be something like http://google.com/a/[sitename]

    Rresetting the Admin password, then clicking the 'now manage your account' link in the email you receive may be another way to access it?

    Can access admin account but pretty much all the useful email related options give a "admin has not activated this feature" message
