I'm managing a Google Suite environment, for example, for company example.com. At the moment I'm managing it via the owner@example.com email address. But what I want, if possible, is to manage it via my own Google account, for example me@gmail.com.

When I try to add my own email address as administrator I receive the following warning message:

User does not exists.

Is this possible?


Unfortunately it is not possible. You must create a new email address within the same domain as administration account.

  • Which means you will be paying Google an extra $12/month just to have the admin account??? – Michael Jun 19 at 1:03
  • Yep, at the time being in 2016. I don't know if anything did change in the meantime. – maartenpaauw Jun 21 at 7:22
