Hi folks... I have both "Domain A" and "Domain B" both with their own Google Suite accounts "Account A" and "Account B".

 

What I want to do is to make "Domain A" an alias for "Domain B". 

 

Initial status:

 

  • Account A/Domain A
  • Account B/Domain B

End status:

 

  • Account A/
  • Account B/Domain B, Domain A

A "Mailbox X" exists in each domain so ideally contents would be merged, if not then I can always copy to an Outlook PST file and copy back after moving domains.

 

I could of course just remove delete Domain A and add it to Account B but I am not sure if this can be done - don't want to delete it, finding out it can't be added to another account and then not being able to reinstate.

 

Anyone done that?

Sorry, never needed to try that. I did find this however: https://support.google.com/domains/answer/6260895?hl=en 

 

That looks like what you want?

To be honest, this would be a good time to migrate to Office 365!

 

I think as you said, delete domain on one account and add to another, then manually upload outlook data file would be best for this Google Apps migration - perhaps over a long weekend.

This ^^^ is Google's suggested method

Step 3 says:

Add the domain whose account you deleted to the account you chose to keep.
Add the domain as either a separate domain or domain alias, depending on whether the domain has its own set of users. Which should I choose?

I've done a fair bit with Google Apps for customers, including moving things around, changing account names, though I don't know if I merged two accounts. It's a bit late for me to think right now, but if you need a hand give me a yell.

From memory this was how I did it the one time i had to change a client from one domain to the another ( the domain they originally wanted was not available when we set them up )

 

Thankfully we had fibre so migrating with PSTs and IMAP didn't take to long :)

Google apps has an email migration tool built in. Does IMAP, probably not PST.

I don't think I would use a PST file to migrate between Google Suite/apps accounts. Might be because of bad experiences with PST files and Outlook...

 

I have had great success with this tool, especially with accounts with lots of data: Backupify Migrator
