That is exactly what I mean.  They are on Google Apps now.  This is a mental 
health/medical office.  Most of the clients are covered by Medicare, old age, 
but mostly disability.  They were recently audited by one of the payors (I 
don't know which one) and Google was not deemed HIPAA-compliant for security 
and privacy reasons.

Supporting this office is not my job so much as it is a smaller part of my job.  
For that reason, I don't want to take on the responsibility of managing the 
groupware system.
