In my Google Apps account I have only one user: [email protected]. How can I configure Google Apps to forward emails for [email protected] to [email protected]?

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.

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.


There are two ways

Way 1

Create an account for [email protected] and then forward all emails to [email protected] from settings of [email protected]

Way 2

Make [email protected] 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. Commented Nov 28, 2013 at 14:06
  • "not exactly what I wanted" means?

  • @Weehooey has the right answer - this would be too costly and inefficient. Commented Dec 18, 2013 at 15:09
