I have a .pl domain with Google Apps for your domain - mostly for email management. Now one of the users in this domain want to change her email address to a new one (surname change).

What is the easiest way to do it? I haven't found any 'rename' email address option.

This is possible, but apparently only through the Provisioning API, witch is only available to Premier and Education Edition domains.

If you don't have one of those, you could simply create an alias for that account and set up a custom from address, so new mail is sent from that alias.

An alias is probably the best bet, since you will still get mail addressed to the old address. – pkaeding Sep 13 '10 at 16:10
Agreed with @pkaeding about continuing to get the old email, too. – nhinkle Sep 13 '10 at 19:27
