Using mxHero gateway selectively on Google Apps

You may want to route only specific users through the mxHero gateway. This guide explains how to configure Google Apps for selective (by user) routing.

First of all, you'll define a group on "Groups" that will include the list of users you want to be routed through mxHero gateway.

  • Click on Groups
  • Click on Create Group

  • Click on CREATE

Now, let's add the members of that group, which will be the users that will be routed through mxHero.

  • Click into the newly created group
  • Add the users like the below

  • When you're done, please go back to the dashboard home.
  • Click on Apps (perhaps under "MORE CONTROLS" at bottom of screen) ...

  • Click on Google Apps ...

  • Click on Gmail ...

  • Click on Hosts ...

  • Click on Add Route ...

Now, go back to the Settings for Gmail.

  • Click on Advanced Settings (near bottom) ...

You can choose to enabled inbound, outbound or both flows. To enable both, you have to configure separately as follows below.

INBOUND CONFIGURATION

  • Scroll down to "Inbound gateway" in the "Spam" section, and click Configure

Set the configuration as:

  • Click on SAVE
  • Scroll down to "Content compliance" in the "Compliance" section, and click Configure

Set the configuration as:

NOTE: The content on the section "2. Add expressions (...)" below is: "X-mxHero-Server: 585439da368cbc9d4fe026ab3795e8c7", where the "585439da368cbc9d4fe026ab3795e8c7" is an example. You have to get your signature with the mxHero support, which is the same you'll use on the next section (Custom headers), for X-mxHero-Transport-Agent value.

Click on SAVE.

Then click on SAVE in the bottom and the process is completed.

OUTBOUND CONFIGURATION

  • Scroll down to "Routing" in the "Routing" section, and click Configure

Set the configuration as:

Click on SAVE.

Click on SAVE in the bottom and the process is completed.

Now you just need to set you our Fusion rules on the mxHero dashboard. And make sure you set up your SPF records accordingly!
