Entity Accounts and Google Groups

The following will help you decide whether you need an Entity Account or a Google Group.

An entity account is a real email address that has its own inbox and sent mail.

Use this if you want to:

  • Save email history in a single place
  • Post a contact email on a website or in a publication
  • Do business using this email address
  • Communicate one to one with your customer as a spokesperson for your organization

Use this if you want to:

  • Plan an event or project among several members
  • Share primarily with UAH domain email addresses
  • Collaborate with two way conversations among the whole group
  • Maintain a single archive of conversations among the group
