            Google G Suite Integration

            If your organization uses Google G Suite for your email hosting, you can easily add our Fast&Secure encryption service by changing the advanced Gmail settings on your account. You will want to route all outbound mail to our service (the default hostname is 'gc1.fastandsecure.net'). You should also route any inbound encrypted emails through our service, and we will decrypt and route them back to Gmail for you.

            Setting up Outbound Routing

            1. Login to your G Suite account at apps.google.com, and click on the 'Apps' icon in the dashboard.
            2. Click on 'G Suite', then 'Gmail' and then click on 'Advanced Settings' at the bottom of the list.
            3. In the 'General Settings' tab (should already be highlighted), scroll down to Routing at the bottom
            4. Enter our encryption service hostname 'gc1.fastandsecure.net' in the 'Outbound gateway' setting here.

            Important: Make sure to click 'Save' at the bottom right once done with all setting modifications! Settings can take up to 1 hour to take effect.

            Setting up Inbound Routing

            You will want to set up inbound routing so that GlobalCerts can de-crypt any encrypted message you receive from other GlobalCerts customers, or organizations using your S/MIME certificates. Here, we will set up a route and a routing rule to relay any inbound mail with an encrypted attachment (smime.p7m) to our service for decryption. First, you will create a connector to our service:
            1. Login to your G Suite account at apps.google.com, and click on the 'Apps' icon in the dashboard.
            2. Click on 'G Suite', then 'Gmail' and then click on 'Advanced Settings' at the bottom of the list.
            3. Click on the 'Hosts' Tab at the top, then click on the 'Add Route' button to the right
            4. In the pop-up, name the connector, then enter the hostname 'gc1.fastandsecure.net' and specify port 25. Make sure to require TLS. Save the connector.


            Now, you need to use the connector whenever you receive an inbound S/MIME email:
            1. Under the G Suite -> Gmail -> Advanced Settings, go to the 'General Settings' Tab.
            2. Go down to 'Compliance' Section, and go to 'Attachment compliance' and click the 'Configure' button on the right.
            3. In the pop-up, give the setting a name 'Inbound encrypted', and check the 'Inbound' checkbox.
            4. In step (2), define a custom attachment types: 'p7m, p7s' (these are for S/MIME signed or encrypted emails)

            5. In step (3), select 'Modify message' and check 'Change route' checkbox and select the 'Fast&Secure' route you created earlier.
            6. Save the setting by clicking 'ADD SETTING'

            Important: Make sure to click 'Save' at the bottom right once done with all setting modifications! Settings can take up to 1 hour to take effect.

            White-listing Our Service on G Suite (Optional)

            If you're experiencing sporadic delivery issues on inbound mail, it may be because the inbound emails sent through our service are marked as spam by Google. To ensure that emails received from our service make it through, you can white-list our IP address(es) here:
            1. Under the G Suite -> Gmail -> Advanced Settings, go to the 'General Settings' Tab.
            2. Go down to 'Spam' Section, and go to 'Inbound gateway' and click the 'Configure' button on the right.
            3. Give a name like 'Fast&Secure' and then add the IP range: 63.143.4.89/29, and click the checkbox to enforce TLS.
            4. Save the setting by clicking 'ADD SETTING'
