How to Find the Number of Emails each User sent and received in a 24 hour period

Using the Google Workspace Admin Console or Google Vault it’s a difficult task for a super admin to find all of the emails sent or received by the entire organization or sub-group of users in a clear and readable way.

That’s why Email auditing in GAT+ is so important. For any filter you create, you can see who was involved with sending or receiving those emails.

The sender/receiver table will show the Emails divided into different sets of data 

  • Internal senders for emails from the selected data in the Emails tab –  number of emails sent from your domain’s users.
  • Internal receivers for emails from the selected data in the Emails tab – the number of emails each local user received (including, cc’s and bcc’s).
  • External senders for emails from the selected data in the Emails tab – all of the external senders and the number of emails they sent in the last 24 hours.
  • External receivers for emails from the selected data in the Emails tab – all the external receivers and how many emails they received in the last 24 hours.
