Use enhanced pre-delivery message scanning

When Gmail identifies that an email may be phishing, it might show you a warning or move the email to Spam. Enhanced pre-delivery message scanning improves how to identify suspicious content. 

When Gmail detects suspicious content, it introduces a short delivery delay to perform additional checks. Gmail does this through a setting turned on for all domains and controlled in the Admin Console. 

Find the enhanced pre-delivery message scanning setting

To find this setting:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Appsand thenG Suiteand thenGmailand thenAdvanced settings.

    Tip: To see Advanced settings, scroll to the bottom of the Gmail page.

  3. Select your top-level organization.
  4. Scroll to the Enhanced pre-delivery message scanning setting.
