To backup Google Apps Mail accounts to Box or Box Enterprise managed, you need to create one-way sync pairs like this:

Google Mail (bob@acme.com)   -> Box (bob@acme.com)
Google Mail (alice@acme.com) -> Box (alice@acme.com)
...

The above will create a one-way sync of each corresponding Google Mail account with Box account. The data will be backed up, and it will also be kept in sync— allowing you seamless transition.

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to setup data backup sync pairs.
