Hello to any Google Apps experts. If you have at least 2 or more domains with Google Apps, and use nicknames, then I hope you will help me out.

I have a few questions specifically in regards to nicknames domain aliases.

Assuming the following scenario:

Primary domain:

Domain aliases:

User Account: (for login)

My understanding is that when any user account created, it is actually created for/on primary domain. so UserOne and UserTwo are actually and respectively.

My situation is like this, I would like a nickname to attach to an user account, and another different nickname for another domain alias and so one, like so:

UserOne's email addresses:

However, I don't want NicknameOne (alias) be usable with or In another word, I only want nickname which is actually assigned to the right domain be receiving/answer emails sent to it specifically.

In short, a flexibility of mix-n-match nicknames to domain aliases in any combination, while emails are not forwarded to each other in that matrix combination.

Is it do able?

I have done my search and they all point to the idea that a given nickname will be available across all domain aliases. So given the above scenario, I would have 12 possible email address for just UserOne:;;;;;;;;;; and

Which just open up a wide net to attract more spams (as if it hasn't already, given that my other to go by, I get more spams on than my equivalent!!!!)

Hopefully there some insight to this dilemma. Cheers.

Internet is my backyard...

No you can't do what you are looking for with Google Apps, you will need to setup two separate Apps accounts to do that.
