Also just quick reminder about changes in Google Apps and Postini:

There is planned switch from Postini service for Google Apps and introduction of new email security services that will be part and built into Google Apps. The transition will take place on April 23, 2012 and you as the owner of Google Apps must take few steps in order to make sure you get your email delivered.

You will need to update your settings in Google Apps and direct your mail to Google instead of Postini by updating your MX records for your domain associated with Google Apps.
