Signatures and Away Messages

Setting a Signature

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users [signature <signature text>] [file <signature file>] [replyto <EmailAddress>] (replace <Tag> <String>)*

sets a email signature for the given users' primary email address. Use quotes around the signature text if it contains spaces (which it almost certainly will). New lines can be specified with \n. HTML can also be used. An empty string like "" will disable the signature. Use the optional file argument to specify a filename that contains the signature text. This is easier for long, complex signatures. Use the optional replyto argument to specify a reply to address for use with this signature. The optional argument replace can be used to insert values into the signature text. Every instance of {Tag} in the signature will be replaced by String. Instances of the form {RT}...{Tag}...{/RT} will be eliminated if that Tag was not specified or if Tag was specified but the accompanying String is empty. {RT} and {/RT} are eliminated from the signature.

Example

This example sets all user's signatures to be:

Acme Inc
1321 Main Ave
http://www.acme.com
gam all users signature
 "Acme Inc<br>1321 Main Ave<br>http://www.acme.com

This example reads the signature from a file:

gam user bob@example.com signature file bobs-sig.txt

This example reads the signature from an HTML file:

gam user sue@example.com signature file sues-html-sig.html html

Retrieving a Signature

Syntax

gam
 user <username> | group <groupname>| ou <ouname> | all users show signature [format]

Shows the email signature for the given users. By default, the raw HTML of the signature is shown, the optional argument format causes the HTML to be interpreted.

Example

This example shows all user's signature

gam all users show signature

Enabling/Disabling and Setting a Vacation (Away) Message

Syntax

gam
 user <username> | group <groupname> | ou <ouname> | all users
 vacation on|off subject <subject text> [message <message text>] | [file <message file>] [html]
 startdate <YYYY-MM-DD> enddate <YYYY-MM-DD>
 [contactsonly] [domainonly]
 (replace <Tag> <String>)*

enable or disable a vacation/away message for the given users. subject <subject text> will set the away message subject. message <message text> will set the away message text. Use quotes around <subject text> and <message text> if they contain spaces (which they probably will). If file is specified instead of message, the message will be read from the given text file. In <message text>, \n will be replaced with a new line. The optional argument html says to interpret the message text as HTML. Except for the simplest messages, you should specify html even if your message doesn't contain HTML as Google does unexpected line wrapping when html is not specified. The optional startdate and enddate arguments set a start and end date for the vacation message to be enabled. The optional argument contactsonly will only send away messages to persons in the user's Contacts. The optional argument domainonly will prevent vacation messages from going to users outside the Google Apps domain. The optional argument replace can be used to insert values into the away message text. Every instance of {Tag} in the message will be replaced by String. Instances of the form {RT}...{Tag}...{/RT} will be eliminated if that Tag was not specified or if Tag was specified but the accompanying String is empty. {RT} and {/RT} are eliminated from the message.

Example

This example sets the away message for the user

gam user epresley vacation on subject "Elvis has left the building"
 message "I will be on Mars for the next 100 years. I'll get back to you when I return.\n\nElvis"

This example reads the message from a text file:

gam user bob@example.com vacation on subject "I am away" file bobs-away-message.txt

Retrieving Vacation Settings

Syntax

gam
 user <username> | group <groupname> |ou <ouname> | all users show vacation [format]

Show the given user's vacation message and settings. By default, the plain text or raw HTML of the vacation message is shown, the optional argument format causes the HTML to be interpreted.

Example

This example shows the vacation settings for jsmith

gam user jsmith show vacation

Labels and Filters

Create a Label

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users label <label name>

create a Gmail Label for the given users. Use quotes around the label name if it contains spaces. Labels are described here.

Example

This example creates a label called New Label for all users

gam all users label "New Label"

Retrieving User's Labels

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users show labels [onlyuser] [showcounts]

Show the labels for the given users. If the optional argument onlyuser is specified, default labels including inbox, unread, drafts, sent, chat, muted, spam, trash, popped, and contactcsv will not be shown. Label visibility will also be reported. If the optional argument showcounts is specified, message and thread counts will be show for each label.

Example

This example shows the labels for all members of the marketing group

gam group marketing show labels

Delete a Label

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users delete label <label name>

delete the given label for the given users. Use quotes around the label name if it contains spaces. Labels are described here.

Example

This example deletes a label called Old Label for all users

gam all users delete label "Old Label"

Create a Filter

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users filter
  from <email>|to <email>|subject <words>|haswords <words>|nowords <words>|musthaveattachment
  label <label name>|markread|archive|star|forward <email address>|trash|neverspam|important|notimnportant

Create a Filter for the given users. Filter must have one or more conditions (from, to, subject, haswords, nowords or musthaveattachment) and one or more actions (label, markread, archive, star, forward, trash, neverspam, important or notimportant). You do not need to create a label before creating a filter that labels messages, creating a filter that labels messages will automatically create the label. Filters are described here.

Example

This example creates a filter for the user john that labels message from dianne@gmail.com and archives them (thus they will only appear under the label)

gam user john filter from dianne@gmail.com label Dianne archive

Retrieve a Filter

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users info filters <FilterIDList>

turn IMAP on or off for given users. There are three options:
noautoexpunge: If this value is not specified, Gmail will immediately expunge a message when it is marked as deleted in IMAP. When specified, Gmail will wait for an update from the client before expunging messages marked as deleted. expungebehavior: The action that will be executed on a message when it is marked as deleted and expunged from the last visible IMAP folder. The acceptable values are: "archive": Archive messages marked as deleted; "deleteforever": Immediately and permanently delete messages marked as deleted. The expunged messages cannot be recovered; "trash": Move messages marked as deleted to the trash. maxfoldersize: An optional limit on the number of messages that an IMAP folder may contain. Legal values are 0, 1000, 2000, 5000 or 10000. A value of zero is interpreted to mean that there is no limit.

Example

This example will turn IMAP on for all current users in the domain.

gam all users imap on

Retrieving IMAP Settings

If the for and action arguments are not specified, all mail will be popped and kept in the Inbox.

Example

This example will turn POP on for any users in the group students. All mail in the Inbox will be exposed to the POP client and POPped emails will be kept in the Inbox.

gam group students pop on

This example will turn POP on for Bob but only for new mail he receives. Mail will be archived after it is popped:

gam user bob@example.com pop on for newmail action archive

Send As

Add a Send As Address (Custom From)

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users sendas <EmailAddress> <Name> [signature <String>|(file <FileName>) [replyto <EmailAddress>] [default] [treatasalias <Boolean>] (replace <Tag> <String>)*

Add <EmailAddress> as one of the given users' send as addresses (also called Custom From). <Name> is the nice name users see with the email (Use quotes if <name> includes spaces). Each send as address can have its own signature. See Setting a Signature. Optionally, default specifies that this should be the address used for outgoing mail by default (user can choose which address mail is sent from when they compose). Also optional, replyto <EmailAddress> specifies a Reply To address to be used when mail is sent out via this sendas. See here for a description of the treatasalias <Boolean> argument. The optional argument replace can be used to insert values into the signature text. Every instance of {Tag} in the signature will be replaced by String. Instances of the form {RT}...{Tag}...{/RT} will be eliminated if that Tag was not specified or if Tag was specified but the accompanying String is empty. {RT} and {/RT} are eliminated from the signature.

Warning: Google has recently taken steps to limit what email addresses forwards can be set to via the API (and thus via GAM). See this blog post for details about what domains you can set forwards to. Generally you are limited to forwarding to your primary domain, alias and secondary domains and subdomains of those.

Example

This example adds mtodd as one of alincoln's send as addresses.

gam user alincoln sendas mtodd "First Lady" replyto mtodd signature "Mary"

Delegates

A delegate is someone who has been given access to someone else's email and contacts. The delegator is the one whose email and contacts are accessible by the delegate. Delegate and the delegators must be in the same domain, granting delegate access across multiple domains is currently not possible.

Creating a delegate

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users delegate to <delegate email>
gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users add delegate <delegate email>

Gives email and contact access for the given users (the delegators) to the specified delegate account. Unlike when users request delegate access via Gmail settings, no email will be sent to the delegators for approval, the approval occurs immediately. The delegate and the delegator must be in the same domain, granting delegate access across multiple domains is currently not possible.

Both the Gmail delegator and the delegate:

  • Must be active. A 500 error is returned if either user is suspended and disabled.
  • Must not require a change of password on the next sign in. A 500 error is returned if either user has this flag enabled in the control panel, or, using the Provisioning API, the changePasswordAtNextLogin attribute is true.

You can confirm these settings using the gam info user command. Both "Account suspended" and "Must change password" should show false for both the delegate and the delegator.

Example

This example gives jbezos access to the contacts and email of the sales account.

gam user sales delegate to jbezos@amazon.com

Deleting a delegate

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users delete delegate <delegate email>

Deletes the delegate for the given users.

Example

This example takes away deSecretary's access to deBoss's email and contacts.

gam user deBoss delete delegate deSecretary

Print delegates

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users print delegates [todrive]

Display or upload to Google Drive a CSV report of users' delegates. The optional todrive parameter specifies that the results should be uploaded to Google Drive rather than being displayed on screen or piped to a CSV text file.

Prints the delegates that have access to the given user accounts.

Example

This example prints delegates across the entire domain.

gam all users print delegates

Show delegates

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users show delegates [csv]

Shows the delegates that have access to the given user accounts. Optional argument csv prints out CSV style output instead of human readable.

Example

This example shows delegates for users in the technology group.

gam group technology show delegates

Managing S/MIME Certificates

Adding S/MIME Certificates

Syntax

gam user <email> add smime <file <filename>> <password <password>> [default] [sendas <email>]

Uploads an S/MIME certificate for the user. The file argument specifies the local file which contains the S/MIME Certificate to be uploaded. The password argument specifies the password used to encrypt the S/MIME certificate. The optional argument default specifies that if user has multiple certificates for this sendas, this one should be the default. The optional argument sendas specifies the sendas email address that the S/MIME certificate should be used with. If sendas is not specified, the user's primary address is assumed.

Example

This example uploads the file jim.pfx for Jim and marks it as default.

gam user jim@acme.com add smime file jim.pfx password p@ssw3rd default

Updating S/MIME Certificates

Syntax

gam user <email> update smime [id <id>] [sendas <email>] <default>

Updates a S/MIME certificate for a user. Currently the only update operation is to mark the certificate as the default. The id argument specifies the id of the S/MIME certificate to update. If ID is not specified then all existing certificates will be listed. The sendas argument specifies the sendas address which owns the certificate to be updated. If sendas is not specified, the user's primary address is assumed. The default argument updates the selected certificate to be the default. Currently default is required since it's the only update operation.

Example

This example sets a certificate to be the default for John's primary address.

gam user john@acme.com update smime id 84833830 default

Deleting S/MIME Certificates

Syntax

gam user <email> delete smime <id <id>> [sendas <email>]

Deletes a S/MIME certificate for a user. The id argument specfies which S/MIME certificate should be deleted. The optional sendas argument specifies the sendas address which the certificate is associated with. If sendas is not specified then the user's primary address is used.

Example

This example delete's the user's certificate.

gam user john@acme.com delete smime id 34394348349

Show/Print S/MIME Certificates

Syntax

gam user <email> show|print smime primaryonly todrive

Show or print the S/MIME certificates of the specified user(s). Show displays the certificates on the screen while print outputs CSV format. The optional argument primaryonly skips looking up additional sendas addresses for user and only pulls certificates associated with the user's primary address. The optional argument todrive specifies that printed output should be uploaded to a Google Drive Spreadsheet instead of displaying the CSV to the screen.

Example

This example creates a spreadsheet with all user primary certificates.

gam all users print smime primaryonly todrive

Hiding/Unhiding users from the domain contacts

Individual user profiles can be hidden/unhidden from the domain contacts list (sometimes called the Global Address List or GAL).

Changing a users profile to hidden/unhidden

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users profile shared|unshared
Share a user's profile (contact) information with other users in the domain. If a user's profile is shared, they'll show up in autocomplete and contact searches for other users. If a user is unshared, others will not be able to discover the user's address and detailed contact info.

Example

this example hides all users in the asked-to-be-hidden Google group from email address autocomplete and contact searches.

gam group asked-to-be-hidden profile unshared

Showing users profile hidden/unhidden status

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users show profile
Show the current sharing status of the users' profile.

Example

this example shows the status of all user profiles in the domain.

gam all users show profile

User Profile Photos

Updating Profile Photos

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users update photo <photo filename>

Create or replace the user's photo with the one specified by filename. File should be jpg format. You can use #user# as part of the filename and it will be replaced with the user's full email address.

Examples

this example replaces Michael Jones' photo with the one from the employee photo directory

gam user michael.jones@acme.com update photo h:\employee-photos\mjones.jpg

this example replaces all user's photos with ones stored in c:\photos<user email>.jpg

gam all users update photo c:\photos\#user#.jpg

Getting Profile Photos

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users get photo [drivedir|(targetfolder <FilePath>)] [noshow]

Gets the users' current photo and saves it to a file named username-domain.jpg in the GAM path. If drivedir is specified, the files will be saved in the folder referenced by the environment variable GAMDRIVEDIR. If targetfolder <FilePath> is specified, the files will be saved in FilePath. The noshow argument prevents to photo data from being displayed to stdout.

Example

This example retrieves photos for all users in Google Apps and saves them to files in the C:\photos directory.

gam all users get photo targetfolder "C:\photos"

Deleting Profile Photos

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users delete photo

Deletes the given users' profile photo returning it to blank.

Example

This example will delete the profile photo for all members of the group named abused-the-system

gam group abused-the-system delete photo

Managing User Emails

Modifying User Emails

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users modify messages|threads query <gmail search> [doit] [maxtomodify <number>] [addlabel <label>] [removelabel <label>] 

Modify user Gmail messages or threads. If you specify messages, the search will be done against individual messages and only individual messages that match the query will be modified. If you specify threads then all messages in all threads that match the query will be modified. The addlabel argument specifies labels that should be added to matching messages/threads. The removelabel argument specifies labels that should be added to matching messages/threads. The query parameter is required and uses Gmail search syntax. See the Advanced Gmail Search help article for some tips on complex searches.

By default, GAM will not modify any messages/threads for users. The doit parameter is needed to tell GAM to actually perform the modify operation.

The maxtomodify paramater (default: 1) defines how many matching messages/threads per user that may be modified. If more than this number of message matches the search query, GAM will refuse to modify ANY messages for that user.

Example

This example moves all matching messages to the Spam folder.

gam user joe@acme.com modify messages query 'subject:"buy viagra"' addlabel SPAM removelabel INBOX doit maxtomodify 10

This example marks all messages from president@acme.com as Important and Starred.

gam all users modify messages query from:president@acme.com addlabel IMPORTANT addlabel STARRED doit maxtomodify 500

Deleting, Trashing or Untrashing User Emails

Syntax

gam user <username>|group <groupname>|ou <ouname>|all users delete|trash|untrash messages|threads query <gmail search> [doit] [maxtodelete|maxtotrash|maxtountrash <number>] 

Delete or move to trash messages or threads for a user or group of users. If you specify messages, the search will be done against individual messages and only individual messages that match the query will be deleted/trashed/undeleted. If you specify threads then all messages in all threads that match the query will be deleted/trashed/undeleted. The query parameter is required and uses Gmail search syntax. See the Advanced Gmail Search help article for some tips on complex searches.

By default, GAM will not delete/trash/untrash any messages for users, it only shows what messages will be impacted. The doit parameter is needed to tell GAM to actually perform the delete/trash/untrash operation.

The maxtodelete/maxtotrash/maxtountrash paramater (default: 1) defines how many matching messages/threads per user that may be affected. If more than this number of message matches the search query, GAM will refuse to modify ANY messages for that user.

Examples

This example gets a count of how many messages a user has with PDF attachments but doesn't actually do anything to them.

gam user joe@acme.org delete messages query filename:pdf

This example will delete the message that has this exact RFC822 Message ID header for all users. Only one message at most will be deleted for all users (they should have only one copy). This example is useful if an email is sent to a large number of people and you wish to remove it from their mailbox quickly.

gam all users delete messages query rfc822msgid:CAGoYzwvzepSfbHB8mBoOx4VqsiotTmRjvBSFjz8NMg2VXeHTrA@mail.gmail.com doit

This example will trash the thread that has a message from internal.leaker@gmail.com. This means that if users have replied to the message or forwarded it, those messages should also be deleted from the user mailbox.

gam all users delete threads query from:internal.leaker@gmail.com maxtodelete 10 doit

This example will trash all messages older than 7 years for members of the group. BE CAREFUL! There is no undo button. This command could be run on a regular basis (once a day or so) in order to ensure messages older than 7 years are trashed for the user.

gam group purge7@acme.org trash messages query older_than:7y doit maxtodelete 999999999
