Google Apps: Email Forwarding to another domain or email address

For Admins with Multiple Domains
  1. Sign up for Google services using your primary domain.
  2. Add a secondary domain, if you you want to share your Google Apps services with another domain.
  3. Add users to your Google accounts.
  4. Add a domain alias to your primary or secondary domains.
If you add a domain alias, everyone you add to your original domain automatically gets a second address at your alias domain. For example, john@work.com now has an alias address john@alias.com. Mail sent to either address arrives at Maria’s same inbox. Maria can also set up her Gmail account to send mail from either address.
Note that you can’t customize the first part of a domain alias address (the part before the @ sign). In the example above, john@alias.com can’t have the address john.aka@alias.com.

For Regular Users:

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console.
  2. Go to the user's account page.
  3. On the user's account page, click Account.
  4. In the Aliases section, click Add an alias.
  5. In the Add an alias text box, enter the user name. (This name is the portion of the user's email address that appears before the @ sign.)
    Note: As with any other email address, you can't reuse an alias that's already been assigned to someone else, either as a primary address or alias.
  6. If multiple domains have been added to your account, the field to the right of the @ sign is a menu listing available domains. Select a domain for the alias address.
  7. Click Save Changes. It can take up to 24 hours for the alias to become available.
