Hi All

     We just finished migrating all of our current users to Google. During the transition, we continued to route all emails. In other words, the MX records pointed to us and all emails would arrive first to our servers and directed to Google if the user has been migrated. Now we want to get out of this and point the MX records to Google. As you can imagine, we still have some leftover things that have not yet been moved and the fear is that email addressed to them will bounce. I am wondering if there is a way to configure Google in such a way to say anything addressed to @wellesley.edu for which there is no local account, simply pass them on to a server at Wellesley. I don't think will create any loops is the server receiving it rewrites the address to @local.wellesley.edu or something to that effect.

     If you have done anything along these lines, can you please let me know?

Ravi,

Yes you can send all unknown mail to an external server.  I just happened to be looking at the documentation for this about 30 minutes ago.  Here's the link:

Ravi,

In the Google Apps admin dashboard Settings > Email > Email Routing you can "add another destination" to send messages for accounts unknown to the Google Apps domain. 

In our configuration, we route all messages that are to addresses unknown to our Google Apps domain to a local server that will try to figure out what to do with them.

Awesome.
