I have a client who I am going to setup a free Google Apps account. I know with the free account the client is limited to 10 users. Is there a way that I can manage their Google Apps account without being an user or taking an user space.


Google Apps for free is no longer avalaible as of 12/6/12 See Here for more info.

I don't see how that could be possible: the domain-administrator needs to be one of the users.

Also, are you sure it's still 10 users for free? I know it used to be, but thought that it got reduced to three.

I suggest setting up a single user account that you know will always be needed, no matter what users come and go. Webmaster@ or administrator@ or something like that.

Otherwise, you will need to share a log in with one of the active users setup as super admin. So far, I have found no way to admin a domain without being a user account in that domain.
