In this Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial, I'm going to show how small business owners who use Google Apps
can save money by setting up what is called a catch-all
email address in their Gmail
accounts. By using the catch-all feature, small business owners can support popular inbound email addresses, such as info@MySmallCompany.com, sales@MySmallCompany.com, support@MySmallCompany.com
, etc., without having to pay the Google Apps fee for those "users". If the volume of such emails in your small business is reasonable, then all of them can be directed to another Gmail account on your domain. In the best case scenario, a one-person company can do fine with just a single Google Account user, saving the small business owner hundreds of dollars per year.
1. Sign into your Google Admin Console
Visit this link:
Choose your Google Account
and sign in with your password.
2. Bring up the Apps Settings
3. Bring up the Google Apps Settings
Click Google Apps
4. Bring up the Gmail Settings
5. Bring up the Gmail User Settings
Click User settings
6. Enter the catch-all address
Scroll down until you find a section in the Gmail User Settings called Routing
Enter the address of a real Gmail user in your account. This is where messages sent to unknown user accounts will be delivered.
7. Save the change to the catch-all setting
That's it! I hope you just saved yourself some money in Google Apps fees. Better in your pocket than Google's!
