I have Google Apps for business email set up for a custom domain. There is a super admin and a couple of users. Whenever any of the users receive an email, I want the super admin to receive it as well. Just how we cc when sending emails.

I apologize if this is a duplicate question, but I did not find a satisfactory answer!

Any guidance on how to do this?

  • That would not be officially supported of-course! What you are looking for is a total breach of privacy.

    @AbhishekGirish Since the Admin wants to see all the mails of a domain user then he/she must be able to. This is not a security breach of privacy, but this is the need of Organization, and an Organization must have full control over its resources. Either it is the mail of an employee or a document or anything else which comes under the T&Cs of the Organization Commented Nov 4, 2012 at 7:14
  • +1 with @WaqarAhmad... If I were to do this for the user's personal mails, then it was a security breach! If I'm the owner of the company, I should know that the email address is being used for company matters only! Commented Nov 5, 2012 at 16:16
  • I think Google Vault (Postini) is gathering all e-mails, available for admins.

Since you are Super admin who want to check the emails being received by domain users, You should create Email Monitors using Mail Audit API. I have been successful to do this using Google Apps Script and Email Audit API. Hope this will come to rescue you too.

  • I never could give the time for it, would be nice if you point me to a tutorial of some sort. But thanks anyways for introducing me to something new! :D Commented Jan 3, 2013 at 14:02
