Forwarding from Gmail

If your customer support emails go to a regular Gmail inbox, you should follow these instructions to get the messages into your Sirportly account.

If you are a Google Apps for Business user, Google restricts the character set you can use for mail routing from the admin panel, so you must set up a forwarding address on an individual inbox.


  • From the Admin Dashboard select "Ticket Submission" on the left, followed by "E-mail Routing"
  • Click "Add new address"
  • Enter the email address of the mailbox you'll be forwarding from, ensure that forwarding is checked and click continue.
