Why use the GMail web interface with Google Apps?

Google provides multiple ways to use your Google Apps account including with Microsoft Outlook and many other standard email clients, but we believe the best way to experience Google Apps is through the Google Mail (GMail) interface. GMail delivers the full power and flexibility of Google Apps through any web browser with no complicated setup or training necessary. We highly encourage our Google Apps users to try the GMail web interface for a number of reasons:

1. GMail is accessible from any computer using any standard web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc.) 
2. No software is required to be installed on your computer - there is nothing to setup or configure 
3. GMail gives you access to the full Google Apps suite of applications including Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Docs and much more 
4. Google Apps works best in a browser, and many features are not available when using it with applications like Microsoft Outlook 
5. It is very powerful and easy to use!

Google has made many resources available to help users that are new to the Google Apps system. Here are a few to help you get started:
