In my Google Apps account I have only one user: admin@example.com. How can I configure Google Apps to forward emails for info@example.com to admin@example.com?

I would not recommend either of the ways listed by Ankur Mhatre. Creating another account is an admin headache (not to mention the cost) and the catch-all is not recommended by Google because it can lead to increased incidents of spam.

Instead you should either create a nickname for admin@ :

Or create a group with admin@ as a member:

Generally, if the mail sent to info@ only ever needs to go to admin@ use a nickname. If you have multiple users who need to receive mail from info@ use the groups.

Sorry it took me until now to respond. Yes - this is what I was looking for and is indeed the correct approach. – Jared Eitnier Dec 18 '13 at 15:08

There are two ways

Way 1

Create an account for info@domain.com and then forward all emails to admin@domain.com from settings of info@domain.com

Way 2

Make admin@domain.com as default address through your admin panel

You can refer this for creating default address (catch-all address) https://support.google.com/a/answer/33962?hl=en

Thanks, I created a catch-all. Not exactly what I wanted but close enough. – Jared Eitnier Nov 28 '13 at 14:06
    
"not exactly what I wanted" means? – Ankur Mhatre Nov 29 '13 at 6:06
    
@Weehooey has the right answer - this would be too costly and inefficient. – Jared Eitnier Dec 18 '13 at 15:09

Here's another method, which also allows to forward to any email inside and outside of the organization, without creating an account:

  • Apps > Google Apps > Gmail > Advanced settings
  • Routing > Recipient address map
  • Hover and click CONFIGURE on the right

The dialog is very simple, don't think it warrants a step-by-step.
