Yes you can do this but not without a little bit of hacking around. From my answer at Equivalent of 'archive' for priority inbox \ multiple inbox : The only way that I have found to do it is either with the element inspector in chrome/safari or with firebug in firefox. The good news is that once you have made the settings change it will work in all ...

What you need to do is generate an application-specific password for each client you want to authenticate to your Google account. Then enter the application-specific password instead of your password or password + verification code. You can generate these application-specific passwords by going to this page (use your domain name instead of example.com): ...

To do this, you need to set up Gmail to send emails via an "external" mail server. However, since the alias domain is already registered with Google, you can in fact set this "external" server to their servers and have it work just fine! Gmail -> Settings -> Accounts -> Edit Info (on alias account) -> Next Step -> Send through example.com SMTP servers ...

You can set this up as either an alias domain on your existing Apps account or as a new Apps account, entering mail.domain.com as the domain in the set up process You will need to set up the correct DNS records against mail.domain.com. With an Apps domain alias all users are mirrored, i.e.: mail for user1@mail.domain.com will be recieved by ...

Open the "Settings" tab at the top, select "Email" under "Services" from the menu at the left, then select the "Default routing" tab. Click "Add Setting". You can now decide between "Single recipient" or "Pattern match" if you have more than one. I chose to use a pattern. My pattern looks something like: (alias1|alias2|alias3)@mydomain.com Make sure that ...

There is no easy way to do this. Email is the hardest part. This is the guide I followed: http://base6.com/2009/06/15/migrating-from-gmail-to-google-apps/ Exact Steps I followed: Documents (Not in the guide): Share all of your existing documents with full privileges with your new apps account. Email (From the comments on the guide): In your Gmail ...

Try the link below, changing the test@example.com value as needed. https://mail.google.com/mail/u/?authuser=test@example.com

This is very easy to do for email at least. Just upgrade your Google Apps domain to Premier edition temporarily (you can get a 30-day free trial upgrade from a link available on your Google Apps dashboard). You'll have full access to the Gmail migration tool, which is excellent.

Using email group is one option but if you want to be able to Send As you might need a shared mailbox. I'm not completely sure but I don't think you can configure Send As from a group. If you are using Premier edition, you can create a shared mailbox and then give each user access to that account. They will be able to then open that mailbox from their ...

Being an avid user of Gmail and Google Apps myself, I know that it's not as simple as it seems, there's a few steps involved. You have to redirect all of your work emails to your personal one, verify that you own your personal email, verify (again) that you own your work email so you can send mail through that address and setup a filter so that things don't ...

Yes, it's possible. Unfortunately, unlike the vacation autoresponder which only sends the message once to the sender, you'll end up sending the message every time you receive a message. First, you need to turn on the Canned Responses lab and set one up. (To create a canned response, start by composing a new message, then in the context menu of the compose ...

One more way to do this in Google Apps is to use a "group". A group is like a mailing list. Here are the steps you can follow: "Manage This Domain" (for domain1.com) "Email Settings" "Users and Groups" "Create a New Group". Fill-in your details. In your case, the group email address will be "guy". Make sure you choose "Team" and "Also allow anyone on the ...

Google has a page called Managing and using Google products: Transferring product data which will probably contain the most up-to-date information. Currently they have guides on how to transfer data from the following services: AdWords Blogger Bookmarks Contacts FeedBurner iGoogle Maps: Saved Locations Reader YouTube ... and how to share data with the ...

I have had limited success with the following format: Subject: My test event Email body says: This is my test event! When: May 7, 9-10AM Where: 123 Main Street, Berkeley, CA Using the keyword "Location" instead of "Where" seems to work also. In Google Calendar, this will populate the Subject, the body and the event time and the event location (The ...

At this point the general consensus is that there is no way to turn off this "embed images" function of the otherwise "drag-to-attach" feature of the new Gmail. There are a few criteria to keep in mind though, circumstances in which attachment will occur rather than embedding: Dragging in multiple images simultaneously (using multi-select, shift-click, ...

Yes, that's actually one of the selling points: data ownership. Really though, you shouldn't be using work email for personal business.

I also face the same problem, I manage a domain 'fptb.edu.ng' and wanted 'students.fptb.edu.ng' to be supported by the same Google Apps account. I simply added the subdomain 'students.fptb.edu.ng' as a new domain (not domain alias as some people advice), I did all the verification as required by Google Apps (I used File Upload verification method). The ...

Use Gmail + Thunderbird + mail redirect extension.

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.

First turn on keyboard shortcuts: To turn these case-sensitive shortcuts on or off, click the gear icon at the top of any Gmail page and then Mail settings. Choose the option next to "Keyboard shortcuts" to turn them on. You can also enable shortcutsautomatically by going to http://mail.google.com/mail/?kbd=1 After selecting an email use L, it ...

Sam Ruby posted a workaround: From the message dropdown, select Show original, then from the browser select Save Page As.... With a text editor, find the line containing X-From_:. Copy this line to the top of the file, then modify that first line by removing the X- and _: characters. Save the file. Now you case use mutt on that file (example: mutt -f ...

Not possible, and unlikely to ever be possible given that it effectively constitutes a forged from address, which Gmail goes to some lengths to protect against (eg requiring verification for send-as aliases). I miss this feature from mutt, but not so much that it wasn't worth the switch.

I'm seeing this setting in Settings -> Themes. If it's not appearing for you, it might be because of the Google Apps next-generation setting (which is avaliable in US English only).

No, there is no way to do this at this time. Your only option using Gmail's interface is to add the address as a "Send mail as" address.

Each user can add the group address to the list of accounts that they can send mail from. These steps will need to be repeated for each user. In Mail Settings > Accounts, click Add another email address you own Enter the group email address, and change the name to something appropriate for the group email address. Send the verification email (it will be ...

There is an auditing API available in Business, Education and ISP accounts that will allow you to download the contents of a user's GMail account including spam, sent and deleted items. Google doesn't provide a GUI for it, but some third-party software, such as Appogee DMS, does.

Unfortunately not. Even though careers@ is an alias, Google Apps sees it as an existing address. Incoming emails would not know which is the correct careers@. If you were to create a group with the name careers@ you would get the same error. You need to delete the alias and then create careers@'s own account. ...

You can use gmail's send-through feature. Under settings -> accounts and import, edit the email address in question, and when prompted, choose to "send email through example.com SMTP servers". After configuring the SMTP server settings, you should be good to go.

Despite the possibilities you listed, you can also create mail aliases to your main account (if you're the only one who should get the mail otherwise I'd create groups). Users and Groups > Your Main Address > Add nickname > Type it in > Save changes

Set up forwarding the old account to the new. When I changed domains I did this and went one better - I added a filter to label all mail that was forwarded from the old account. So now I can see it at a glance and go and change my details on whatever website is sending to the old address today.
