As a G Suite administrator, there are times when you will need to re-route messages, these could be either inbound or outbound messages. G Suite provides three different ways you can do this:
- Mapping mail destinations using aliases of recipient addresses.
- Email routing
- Forwarding a user’s email to a G Suite address
The Email routing option provides an almost endless combination of setups to manage re-routing of emails. In this post, I demonstrate how to re-route all emails originating from a particular email address and irrespective to whom the mail is sent, it will be re-routed to a specified email address.
In the tutorial, all emails from email@example.com will be re-routed to firstname.lastname@example.org irrespective of whom at Hapaweb email@example.com sent the email.
Step 1: Log into the Google Admin Console and type Gmail setting in the search box. Click on the Settings for Gmail App > G Suite item.
