Old Gmail routing settings to be automatically converted starting July 11th

Update re: end user routing settings (August 6, 2018):

End user routing settings are now read-only and can't be changed. Unlike the settings mentioned below, you don't have the option to CONVERT end user routing settings. Any required configuration changes need to be made via the recipient address mapping feature. We're in the process of automatically migrating end user routing settings and will continue to do so on an ongoing basis.

In January 2017, we announced some changes to the Gmail routing settings in the Admin console. For technical reasons, some of these changes were delayed past the originally communicated date and are now launching this month.

Convert old Gmail routing settings now

Going forward, your remaining Sending routing, Receiving routing, Catch-all address, and Domain-level routing settings are read-only. These settings are still active, but in order to make changes, you need to click the CONVERT button next to the existing rule.

Click CONVERT next to existing rule to map to new fields

Once you click CONVERT, we’ll convert the setting and map it to the new fields automatically. The converted setting will then be placed in the unified routing section, where all of your rules will be manageable from one place. The old setting will no longer be visible in the user interface, so you won’t need to clean up old rules afterward.

All settings automatically migrated starting July 11th

If you don’t convert your settings using the CONVERT button, they’ll be automatically migrated to the unified routing section no earlier than July 11th, 2018. This migration will take place over the course of several weeks.
