I am the admin for a Google Groups email list via groups.google.com (i.e., not a private Apps domain). I want to remove someone from the email list without them being notified. Is this possible? If so how? (Perhaps no notification is ever issued -- the docs are not clear.)

As far as I know, removing someone from a Google Group doesn't alert them with an email.

I just tried it on a regular Google Group (not associated with an Apps for Work account). Adding someone to a Google Group sends an email, although removing someone does not.


I did a test with a group on Google Workspaces and it did notify them.
