More administrative controls for Gmail with Google Apps

When small businesses use Google Apps, it's easy for administrators to help employees configure user settings account-by-account. But this approach doesn't scale up very well for larger companies.

Now that we have a growing list of customers with hundreds and even thousands of employees apiece, offering a streamlined way for admins to configure account settings is essential. Today, with the release of the Google Email Settings API, Premier and Education Edition administrators can programmatically update Gmail settings for their users in bulk by making requests to a GData feed. Modifiable settings include labels, filters, signatures, vacation responders, "send mail as" aliases, interface language, email forwarding, POP, IMAP, and more.

For all the details, check out the Google Email Settings API documentation.
