Manage Email (Mailing) Lists

Message Security for Google Apps -- the integrated version of Postini -- is no longer available for sale or activation. Existing customers are still being supported, but they will be transitioned during the next few months to the new email management features in the Google Admin console. For more details about the new features and the transition, see the FAQs, the Transition Guide, and Add email settings to an organization.

If you've created email (mailing) lists for your users using the Google Admin console, they're automatically added to your Account Administrator account for the Google Apps Message Security and Google Apps Message Discovery services. Your service then protects the lists using the junk and virus settings for that account. You cannot remove the mailing list aliases from the Account Administrator account.

Because all email lists are aliases for your account, you'll receive a copy of all messages sent to any list. You'll also see copies of these messages in your Personal Archive in the Message Center.

If the service identifies a spam message sent to an email list, it sends the message to the Junk quarantine for your administrator account. Therefore, always check your Quarantine Summary or the Message Center Junk quarantine for falsely quarantined messages sent to mailing lists. If you find a legitimate message in your quarantine, deliver it to the list.
