Google Groups settings for Public email addresses

By default, Google Groups are closed and require membership to email the group. ┬áThere are cases where this isn’t ideal, such as:

  • using the email for social media accounts
  • creating a department email that┬ápeople from other organizations can email
  • etc.

If you are using the group to receive public emails these settings.

Permissions > Basic permissions

  • Post: Public

Settings > Moderation

  • Spam messages: Skip the moderation queue and post to the group

The first setting is required and the second optional, but random legitimate messages tend to get caught in the Spam filters.
