Filling the G-Apps: Domains

In Google Apps for Business Gmail you have 2 options for applying domains but they have their own restrictions.

Add-on Domain
Will give you the ability to add any email address from an applied domain to a user but we need to manually add each email address to each user. It also means that Google Apps can be accessed using these domains as well i.e. https://mail.google.com/a/companydomain.com.
The only drawback is that you need to manually add the domain as you add each User or Group.

Alias Domain
Automatically adds the email address to every user & group in the organisation but you can't use the domain for any address other than the user name i.e. useralias@companydomain.com rather than user@companydomain.com or request@companydomain.com.
