In order to begin using the EncryptTitan e-mail encryption services for Google Workspace, you must configure Workspace to send outbound e-mail though the EncryptTitan encryption gateway. 

  1. Point your browser to The URL redirects you to the Google accounts sign-in page.

  2. Enter your super administrator account email address and password. (If you are not an Administrator, you will be redirected to the user hub. The user hub provides quick access to  the services they have permission to use, but will not allow access administration features. You will need to contact your Administrator)

  3. Click Sign in. The Admin console appears.

  4. Click Apps.

  1. Next, click on Google Workspace

  2. Then, click Gmail.

  3. Scroll down and click on Hosts. 

  4. Next, click on Add route.

  5. Enter a description (can be anything, we chose to use EncryptTitan) and then select single host.

  6. Enter the Outbound Gateway Host, listed in your “Welcome E-mail” and type in the number 25 after the colon.

  7. Check both the “Require TLS delivery” and the Require CA signed certificate boxes. Uncheck Validate Certificate Hostname. (EncryptTitan uses CA signed certificates but uses a custom name for each customer gateway addresses, that causes the full validation to fail.)

  8. Then click the Save button.

  9. Go back to Settings for Gmail, scroll down and click on “Spam, Phishing and Malware”.

  10. Click to the “Inbound Gateway” section.

  11. Check the Enable box, then click on the Add link and add the Inbound Gateway IP ranges listed in your “Welcome E-mail”  (this setting will ensure that certain replies to your encrypted messages do not get blocked).

  12.   Go back to Settings for Gmail, scroll down and click on “Compliance”.

  13. Scroll to the “Content compliance” section and click on CONFIGURE or Add Another Rule, if you have other rules already configured.

  14. Enter a description (can be anything, we chose to use "EncryptTitan - Keywords".)

  15. Under “Email messages to affect” check Outbound.

  16. Click on the Add link under the heading Expressions.    

  17. Select Advanced content match 

  18.  Then select Subject as the location.

  19. Under Match type, select Contains text

  20. Under Content enter your keyword and click on SAVE.  Click on ADD and repeat the steps if you are using multiple keywords.  Please note: EncryptTitan only supports case-insensitive keywords.  Be sure to enter case-insensitive keywords only.

  21.  If you are using the EncryptTitan Outlook plugin, or think you might be in the future, click the ADD link.

  22. Select Advanced content match.

  23. Then select Full headers as the Location.

  24. Then select Contains text as the Match Type.

  25. Enter x-encryptmethod as the Content. Then click on SAVE.

  26. Under Route, check the Change route box, and then select the new EncryptTitan mail route we created in Step 12. Then click on SAVE.

    Changes normally take effect in 5 – to 10 minutes. E-mail will continue to use your previous settings until the changes take effect.
