Google adds email log search for Apps admins

Many Google Apps administrators had requested the tool

Google is rolling out a tool for Apps administrators to search through Gmail logs, the company announced on Tuesday.

The feature, available in the Apps control panel, has long been requested by IT administrators of the cloud collaboration and email suite, according to Priya Mathew, Google Apps senior strategist.

"Gmail log search will make it easier to answer questions like: What happened to an inbound or outbound message? Was a message sent to my domain and marked as spam? Which users sent or received a specific message?" Mathew wrote in a blog post.

Using the tool, IT administrators can query email message information such as sender, recipient, subject, data, total transit time and delivery status.

"Gmail log search will help domain admins have the same type of visibility into the operations of Google Apps that they are used to from the legacy, on-premise email systems," he wrote.

Gmail log search, built on the Google BigQuery cloud-based data analysis service, will be available starting Tuesday for Google Apps for business, education and government customers.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
