Business email routing settings in G Suite

If your business is using G Suite and use Gmail by domain as a primary communication tool, this article will give you more options on managing employee email flow. Specifically, the G Suite admin (admin) can configure email routing and move email in different ways, depending on the needs of the business.

 

 

 

1/ What is email routing?

 

 

 

Normally, emails will go through an email filtering gateway and if there are no problems, they can reach the email server. But email routing takes one (or several) steps "depth" More, allowing admins to copy or redirect emails based on certain rules. Routing rules can be built based on sender, receiver, or many other factors.

 

For example, if there is a routing setting, an email can be sent directly to the original recipient, and CC (carbon copied) to several other recipients. An email can also be redirected to a completely different destination than the sender originally intended. 

 

 

2/ Routing and moving email in G Suite

 

 

Likewise with Gmail in G Suite, admins can control how business email is routed and stored. This will contribute to meeting security requirements, ensuring the information flow is not lost if there is an incident / mistake, or ensuring the safety of users, etc.

 

For example, an admin or business manager may need:

 

  • Gmail scans incoming emails for spam, or to comply with unique business requirements, but stores emails on a separate email server (External email server).

 

  • Some users receive mail in Gmail inbox, but others access email from local server.

 

  • All users only use Gmail, but if there are messages from unknown senders, these messages will be routed and sent to a special mailbox.

 

  • Messages to one user must always be CCed to another user (for example, feedback emails, suggestions sent by a customer to a customer service agent must all be CCed to the department manager). there)

 

Admin can use the default settings – email routing – to configure outgoing, incoming, internal emails. If your business has more specific requirements, like content-based email routing, you can use the settings related to the request tcontent compliance, attachments, content – inside information, TLS connection,…

 

G Suite Allowing admins to set up various settings, this article will guide you through the routing options that are most commonly used by businesses. To see the full range of different routing methods, you can visit Google's help page – G Suite Admin Help.

3.1. Set to receive all emails (Catch-all address) 

 

 

With the receive all email setting, admins can ensure that any messages that are accidentally sent to incorrect business email addresses are received.

For example, instead of sending to info@tencongty.com, the sender mistypes the address as info@tencongty.com – the message will still reach the mailbox, as long as the domain name is correct. To do this, the admin needs:

 

  •  Go through the general installation steps > Select the Organization section if necessary > Open the routing settings > Enter a description of the new setting. 

 

  • In section Emails will be affected, option Inbound or Internal-receiving or both (messages sent to your business).

 

  • Select “Envelope filter” if you want this rule to apply only to certain senders and recipients, instead of all. You can specify exactly who should apply this rule by entering the person's email address, or entering the group email address if you want to apply it to a group of users.

 

  • Under “For the above types of messages”, select Modify message.

 

  • Under Envelope recipient, select Change envelope recipient.

 

  • Option Enter new user name (enter new username)

 

  • In the space next to @tencongty.com, enter the email address that will receive all emails sent by mistake > Select Show options.

 

  • Under Account types to affect, check the box Unrecognized / Catch-all. (Do not select Users and Groups) > Add setting > Save.

 

 

3.2. Route email to send more to other addresses

  •  Go through the general installation steps > Select the Organization section if necessary > Open the routing settings > Enter a description of the new setting. 

 

  • In section Emails will be affected, option Inbound or Internal-receiving or both (messages sent to your business).

 

  • Select “Envelope filter” if you want this rule to apply only to certain senders and recipients, instead of all. You can specify exactly who should apply this rule by entering the person's email address, or entering the group email address if you want to apply it to a group of users.

 

  • Under “For the above types of messages”, select Modify message.
