This article is for administrators. To manage your own groups, visit the Google Groups help.
This feature requires turning on Google Groups for Business.
As a G Suite administrator for Google Groups, you can add an identifying word or phrase to the end of email addresses of groups created in your Groups service at groups.google.com.
For example, if you specify the suffix -user-created, and a user creates the group firstname.lastname@example.org, the group email address is email@example.com.
Add a suffix if you want to:
- Differentiate between groups created in the Admin console and in the Groups service, groups.google.com. The suffix is applied only to groups created in groups.google.com. To make the suffix stand out on the Groups list in the Admin console, add a hyphen at the beginning of the suffix.
- Ensure users don’t create groups with email addresses that you or other administrators might need to use, such as “all@your_domain.com”.
Note: Suffixes are not added to groups that users have already created, groups created in the Admin console, or groups created through Cloud Directory APIs. If you enter a suffix, that suffix is added to any new groups you create. If you change to a different suffix, any new groups receive the new suffix, but existing groups keep the original one.
