One of our organisation's Google Apps email inbox is 96% full on its 25GB cap. It seems Google doesn't let you buy any more: http://support.google.com/a/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1047457.
I am wondering what the best way forward is from here? It's a news organisation, so that inbox is the catchall, monitored by multiple reporters/editor, and gets a large amount of news sent to it daily which full res images etc.
Those monitoring the account are not very tech savvy, so the primary focus is the ease in which an old email/story/picture can be retrieved. (i.e I guess I could bang it on a hard drive but that wouldn't work very well for retrieval.)
I guess some options would be to:
Create a new account and dump old mail there (or leave mail where it it and alias a new account).
Dump all mail and forward any new mail to another (archiving?) service.
etc etc. The problem with these is that they require the user to log in to multiple services to solve their immediate issue (and at that point I usually get a ph call instead).
