How to exclude a domain or email from Auditor scanning?


Sometimes schools might want to exclude certain domains or specific email IDs from Auditor scanning to avoid false positives, or exclude non-school domain email IDs, or because some email IDs are deemed safe, etc.

Excluding domains or emails from Auditor scanning is a G Suite level settings and you would need to log in to your G Suite account for it. Here are the steps to do that:

  1. Log in to your G Suite admin console and navigate to Apps > G Suite > Gmail > Advanced Settings.
  2. Scroll down to ‘Routing’ and click ‘Edit’ for the routing you have already set up for Auditor.
  3. Scroll down to ‘Show Options’ and check the ‘Use address lists to bypass or control application of this setting’ field button.
  4. Select the radio button for ‘Bypass this setting for specific addresses/ domains’.
  5. Next, you can select an existing list or create a new list with the domains and/or email address that you want to bypass from Auditor scanning.
  6. If you create a new list give it a name that is easily recognizable such as ‘Bypass for Auditor’ in this example.
  7. Go ahead and add the email IDs or domains that you want to exclude and click Save.
  8. Save the new settings.

The domains or email IDs specified in the list will now be excluded from forwarding to Auditor scanning.
