I have an account and just migrated my domain to Google Apps. I setup Gmail for my domain so now I have two different inboxes: (1), (2) .

Now I want to add to my email addresses for, which are listed in ("Email addresses and usernames" > "Email addresses"')

I clicked "edit" and am redirected to . However, after I enter to the "Add a new alternate address" text field and click "Save", it alerts saying "" is already associated with another Google Account.

I want to use for my Google Groups and some of the other serivces instead of . Any idea about how can I add to email addresses owned by (so that I can switch emails without applying for access permissions again) ?

(I already have two other email addresses connected with and they work just fine. I only have to confirm the connection by clicking a link sent to my other two email inboxes.)

I have faced a similar issue after migrating from Gmail to Google Apps and there isn't a way to use the old Gmail address with your new GA address.

You can however using the multiple sign-in feature of Google Accounts to stay signed in to both accounts always and switch based on the service that you are on.

Well, for Google Groups, when I click "My membership", I can select "Use [SOME_EMAIL_ADDRESS] for this group ...". Without actually connect the two emails, I cannot use my new email for posting in the group. – Xiao Jia Sep 25 '12 at 12:42
