How to Block Email Address in G Suite in No Time

What a toy store is for kids, G Suite is for businesses—a wonderland. G Suite has all the essential communication and collaboration tools a business needs, all in one place. Features like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Sheets, Google Meets, and Google Drive are used by thousands of companies worldwide.

G Suite allows its users to create Gmail accounts with a business domain name. The organization’s administrators can leverage various mechanisms to protect users' accounts from spam emails. It’s safe to say, however, that the process is a convoluted one, and it usually takes a lot of time and some trial and error.

But why go through all the trouble when you can use DoNotPay—an app that could help you block unwanted emails on Gmail in seconds! Our AI Consumer Champion can give you a hand with unsubscribing from mailing lists you are not interested in and even help you get compensation.

Can a Google Admin Block Emails?

Every G Suite admin can help prevent malicious emails by adding email addresses or domains to a blocked sender list. That way, G Suite will bounce the emails from those domains or addresses automatically.

The Blocked senders' settings can be configured to apply to either the organization as a whole or to specific individuals within the organization. In other words, an admin can block certain senders for everyone or set up different rules for various departments.

The Blocked senders setting does not necessarily refer to emails posted in Google Groups for Business. In case the blocked sender sends a message to a group, members might receive it. It all depends on the individual’s email and notification settings.

G Suite Blacklist Email Address Setup

Here's what you need to do to block an email address:

  1. Login to your Google Admin console
  2. Select Apps > G Suite > GMail > Advanced settings
  3. If you want to apply the settings to everyone, leave the top organization unit selected
  4. Click on the Blocked senders and pick one of the following options:
  • Edit if you want to change the current settings
  • Configure or Add another for new settings, then insert a unique description
  1. Click Use existing or Create new list
  2. Select Available lists to add contacts to an existing one or click Create new list to make a new one
  3. Click on the list name > Edit > Add +
  4. Insert one or more domain names or email addresses. Make sure to separate every entry with space or comma
  5. Click Save

How to Block All Email Except Whitelist in Gmail

There’s an option in G Suite to block all emails except contacts on your whitelist. To apply this rule, you will need to set up message restrictions:

  1. Log into your Google Admin console
  2. Select Apps > G Suite > Gmail > Advanced Settings
  3. Scroll to the Restrict delivery settings
  4. Click Configure to choose the domains users are allowed to exchange emails with
  5. Click Edit or Add another
  6. For each new setting, insert a unique name

You can always add new email addresses or domains to your whitelist, in case you need to let emails from new business partners or clients go through the filters and reach your inbox.

The Difference Between an Email Whitelist and a Blacklist

Email Whitelist

Email Blacklist

Email whitelist is a list of IP addresses you want to receive emails from. Emails from a whitelisted IP address will never go into your spam folder, so make sure you trust a contact before adding them to your whitelist.

Email blacklist is the polar opposite—it’s a list of email addresses you want to prevent emails from. By adding a contact to a blacklist, all of their emails will go straight to spam automatically.
