If you DO have bobcats in your former address, then you may use this document to consolidate your old and new and Google Apps objects, such as calendar events and contacts. Using Outlook and Google Apps Sync is the preferred method for transitioning your account. Sections of this procedure require uninterrupted operation and Internet access, so we advise that you have your laptop plugged in to A/C power. In addition, the migration of old mail can take some time, dependent upon how much you store, so you should do this at a location where the system can be connected for several hours. Finally, you may consider deleting old mail and emptying the Deleted Items folder before completing the migration. This can significantly reduce the time required. Also, Google Apps Sync requires Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista Service Pack 1, or Windows 7 as the minimal operating systems. You can check your version by rightclicking [My] Computer and selecting Properties from the popup menu. If you have the listed service pack or higher installed, then you can proceed. If not, you need to run Windows Update, possibly multiple times, until these service packs are installed.
