Email routing

Domain-level routing

If you have the legacy free edition of G Suite, upgrade to G Suite Basic to get this feature. 


The Email routing setting is deprecated and will soon be removed from usage, replaced by the Routing setting. During this transitional period, Email routing settings are still visible in the Admin Console, labeled with a red "deprecated" tag. The settings still work for domain-level and catch-all address routing, but you can't edit them or create new ones.

For the domain-level routes you configured, you can convert the Email routing setting to the Routing setting. If you set up catch-all routing, you can convert the catch-all configuration after you convert all additional domain configurations.
