    Questions regarding nicknames in Google Apps

    Morning all,

    I'm just about to setup/migrate a user to google apps who currently has two email addresses. eg, jbloggs@domain.com and office@domain.com.

    I'm wondering whether it is better to set them up as two different users or to just setup jbloggs@domain.com and add the office one as a nickname?

    My concerns are, if jbloggs leaves I'd want to pass the data from the office address onto a new user but not include any of jbloggs personal data, does this make sense?

    The user in question currently uses outlook and we will be setting up outlook sync to enable them to carry on using outlook (as I've done with other users), it would be nice if they could have access to data for both accounts in outlook.

    How have others done this? Any suggestions or advice is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    As far as I know it would be difficult to pass on all the emails etc to another person if they took over as they would go into jbloggs@domain.com's Inbox. What you could do is set up a user office@domain.com and give jbloggs@office.com delegated control. This is what we do for our ictsupport account.

    Cheers
    Tom
