My question here is about domain aliases and how it is managed in Google Apps.

  • My Google Apps account is set with the domain domain.fr
  • I have my account user@domain.fr.

If a create a domain.com alias, do I need to create a user@domain.com account (and pay for it), or will all the emails sent to user@domain.com be automaticly redirected to my user@domain.fr account?

From the google support page:

If you have a domain alias for your primary domain, every user and group with an email address in the primary domain (user@primary.com) automatically has an email alias address in the alias domain (user@domainalias.com).

You don't need to create a new user or a new alias, and all emails will be redirected to the associated user's inbox. As it is an email alias there is no cost.
