Moving from Exchange/Outlook to Gmail for corp email

Looking to make this move as I have had enough of my MBP dragging ass due to outlook's resources. I have about 5k emails in inbox but couple 100k email in offline folders on my MBP. I'd just want to start with inbox before exporting everything else. I use calendar, contacts and notes as well. Best way to set this up?

I use Apple Mail for exchange. I hate Outlook.

I've tried that and that's not what I am looking for. Per the title, I am looking for advice around moving to Gmail.

I don't have any advise to moving to gmail for a corp email.

I do recommend moving to your own email servers. That way you could have something like bob@yourcompany.com. That looks like a company I want to deal with and receive email from.

If you send me a quote request or bill payment request from bob@gmail.com it'll go straight to the trash as spam.

Setting up a email server for your company should cost zero dollars and about 15 minutes. It may take 4 or 5 hours of research if you are doing it.

I'm sorry I couldn't directly help you with gmail as I've never created a gmail account for clients, I have moved many away from gmail though. PM me if you decide to move away from gmail and I'll save you 4 hours research.

It's easy to use Gmail to run your own domain name email. i.e., bob@company.com, but Gmail is hosting and running the email.

I use google apps (the free version before they shut it down) to manage all my email address. The "nicknames" feature in google apps is very nice.

No, I use it for my email. No exchange involved.

i end up with a:
myname@mycompany.com email address that works and acts just like an @gmail.com account.

It works great, I can manage it, sync calendars, contacts, etc with the other accounts under the account.
