Spam and abuse policy

Need to report abuse? Please see our Reporting Abuse Incidents page.

When you sign up for a G Suite account, you agree not to use the account to send spam, distribute viruses, or otherwise abuse the service. All users on your domain are subject to these agreements, which are part of the G Suite Acceptable Use Policy.

If Google identifies a G Suite user who is violating these agreements, we reserve the right to immediately suspend the user. If the problem is domain-wide, we reserve the right to suspend the entire account and deny administrator access to all the G Suite services. In such cases, we send a notification to the registered secondary email address for the domain administrator.

If you identify a G Suite user who is violating these agreements, at your domain or another domain, you can report the abuse to Google by sending an email message to abuse@domain.com or postmaster@domain.com, where domain.com is the domain where the abuse occurs. Google monitors these addresses for every domain registered with G Suite.

Since abuse and postmaster are reserved aliases, you cannot to use them as usernames or aliases. You can, however, subscribe to them and receive all mail sent to these addresses. (Learn more)
