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:
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 UserOne@domainOne.com and UserTwo@domainOne.com 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 @domainAlias.net or @secondaryDomain.org. 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: UserOne@domainOne.com; UserOne@domainAlias.net; UserOne@secondaryDomain.org; NicknameOne@domainOne.com; NicknameOne@domainAlias.net; NicknameOne@secondaryDomain.org; NickTwo@domainAlias.net; NickTwo@domainOne.com; NickTwo@secondaryDomain.org; groupOne@secondaryDomain.org; groupOne@domainOne.com and groupOne@domainAlias.net.
Which just open up a wide net to attract more spams (as if it hasn't already, given that my other @gmail.com to go by, I get more spams on @gmail.com than my @hotmail.com equivalent!!!!)
Hopefully there some insight to this dilemma. Cheers.
