Why can I not use Google Groups as a support address?
Setting up Google Groups as a support address requires a Google Workspace administrator and a Zendesk Support administrator account.
To set up within the G Suite admin console
- Navigate to the Google Workspace Admin Console, while logged in as Admin > click More controls. Next, click the Google Groups icon at the bottom of the page.
- Select the group or email that you are adding as a support address, click Manage users info.
- Remove all users, if there are any. Next, add your default support system address as the sole member, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Remove the footer by going to Group Settings > under Settings, click Email options > unselect the Email footer option.
- In Basic Permissions, make sure that the setting POST is set to Public.
To add the email as a support address within Zendesk Support
- In Admin Center, click Channels in the sidebar, then select Talk and email > Email.
- Click Add Address.
- Select Connect other. This option circumvents a SMTP check that standard emails go through.
If you added the support address prior to setting up the forwarding, click Retry under the support address to resend the verification email.
