How to configure mailbox in Google Apps for user-friendly incoming email addresses for discourse categories (with screenshots)

(Tobias Eigen) #1

I had a bit of trouble figuring out how to set up the mailbox in google apps to work with Discourse so that there is a user-friendly incoming email address for each category. Here are some screenshots that show how I did it. Tested and it seems to be working well.

In summary: assuming the domain name is, there’s an email mailbox for handling all discourse-bound mail, using to handle matching replies to topics and aliases for the mailbox to handle incoming mail for eg categoryname matched with nice email address
