How to Share Your Gmail Postmaster Tools Information with Somebody Else

If you are already using Google’s Gmail Postmaster Tools, guess what! You can share read-only access to this valuable data! (If you aren’t already signed up for Gmail Postmaster Tools, see our tutorial on how to sign up for Google’s Gmail Postmaster Tools.) There are any number of reasons that you might want to give someone else access to your data; here at SuretyMail we use it to review our customers’ inboxing versus spam-foldering at Gmail so that we can help them fix anything that may be causing them to not achieve the best inboxing possible.

The one caveat is that you can only share this access with other Google or Gmail accounts, by which we mean the email address you enter for whomever you want to be able to see your data must be associated with a Google account. It does not have to be a Google or Gmail email address, but it has to be associated with a Google account. For example, if [email protected] is associated with a Google account, then [email protected] can have access.

Important Note: Google does not send a notification to whomever you granted access, you have to tell them that you have done so, and when they log into their own Google account, they will be able to see your data.
