Log Analyzer, Message Header Analyzer and other Support tools now available to Google Apps administrators.

To diagnose issues pertaining to our migration tools, sync tools and email delivery, we’ve made the following tools available:

Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Outlook
Google Apps Migration for Microsoft Exchange
Google Apps Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server

Message Header Analyzer: The Message Header Analyzer extracts delivery and route information (server hops, message delays) from message headers and outputs the results in a less technical format so that administrators can quickly identify where an issue might have arisen and which system is responsible.
