Google Groups Email Accounts Rename

Categories: News, OneIT, Update

Google Groups email accounts will be changed to on March 12, 2024. While we anticipate minimal to no impact to Groups users or members, there are a few items to note:

  • Old Group email addresses – The version of a Group’s email address will continue to function as an alias. All emails for both versions of a Group’s email address will continue to go to the same inbox. No mail will be lost as a result of this change.
  • Shared drives – Shared drives connected to a Group’s email address will continue to function as normal.
  • Third-party services – If a Google Group’s email address was used to create an account with a third-party service, the login method may be affected. Unfortunately, OneIT cannot control the third-party services. However, you can either work with the vendor to resolve or use a different login method.
  • Group memberships – Group memberships will be updated in June 2024 from to
  • Inactive Groups – Inactive Groups or Groups with zero membership will be deleted.
  • Website & communication updates – If a Google Groups email address is listed on any websites, communications, documentation, etc, you will have to update the email address from to manually.
