Enhanced inbound mail gateway functionality

Google Apps allows for the use of inbound mail gateway servers which admins can leverage to process their inbound mail in different ways―such as archiving it or filtering out spam―before passing it onto the Google Apps mail server for delivery.

Today’s launch adds more flexibility for Apps admins when using inbound mail gateway servers:

  • Multiple upstream server systems – to accommodate more complex network architectures, customers can now have multiple server systems upstream from Gmail.

Message tagging – an upstream system can now tag messages as spam in the header, which Gmail will honor, allowing for full delegation of spam filtering to a third party solution if desired.comprompt-Disable downloading, printing, and copying of any Google Drive file

Add-ons for Google Forms

In the spirit of giving you even more flexibility and customization, we’re launching add-ons for Google Forms–new tools, created by developer partners, that bring even more features to your surveys (just like add-ons for Docs and Sheets).

Check out the growing list of available add-ons, several of which are particularly relevant for education, from the “Add-ons” menu in Forms, or by directly visiting the Forms add-ons store.

If you have already disabled add-ons for your domain in the Admin console, Forms add-ons will be defaulted off. To change this setting, click on Google Apps -> Drive > General Settings and check/un-check the “Allow users to install Google Docs add-ons” box.
