I set up a bunch of routes in my new google apps system (migrating from doing inbound email with mailgun forwarding).

In one case we need to forward all email with a particular subject to another address, but it's not clear how to do that in google apps.


in mailgun, i can do

match_header("subject", "cancel")



but in google apps, it seems like i can only do recipient based routing.

Is there any work around for this?

  • Everything I've found says this isn't possible, which seems like a massive oversight. You can, however, forward all your mail to a standards GMail account and then use filters to forward mail to the right place based on the subject line. – jxmallett Oct 27 '15 at 22:53
  • It's pretty archaic. @jxmallett that seems like the most feasible solution outside of writing new software to handle forwards. – Hayk Saakian Oct 28 '15 at 3:35

It is possible to filter and route emails from account settings, which is subscribed to the group


You can create custom Google account, subscribe it to the group, then create a filter and forwarding in the account.
