Google G-Suite Steps to Processing Autotask Email

Here are Google (G-Suite) Mail steps for configuring a rule to re-route the incoming emails to a different recipients, all the information is detailed in the following Help Center Article https://support.google.com/a/answer/2368153.

Hoorary, right?!?!?

Well, maybe…   Follow the straight forward steps illustrated below.  “test@networkfundomainname.com” in our example below, it should be your support@IThelpDesk.com for your business and the recipient further down the page should be the Autotask email address that processes your email for ticket creation, updates, etc.

What’s the catch?

This service, albeit very well advertised on the G-Suite console for any edition the business owns does not support S-suite legacy users.  You must upgrade.   I repeat, AUTOTASK EMAIL PROCESSING WILL NOT WORK FOR LEGACY GOOGLE G-SUITE USERS.

How about using a forwarder from the support mailbox?

This solution produced funky results in our own Legacy G-Suite environment.  Try again here…

Yes, you can set up a dedicated support mailbox within GSuite so that you can forward from GSuite to the incoming email processing mailbox in Autotask, from the original sending email that your customer used.

The forwarding options can be found with this link

What about groups with an external Autotask email address?

It use to work well.  Now its behavior is pretty erratic.
