No matter how tricky the situation might seem, restoring a suspended G Suite account doesn't have to be a nightmare!

Whether you're dealing with a disabled G Suite admin account or just a basic suspension, we've got all the tips and tricks you need to get back on track.

Keep reading to learn how even the most challenging G Suite account suspensions can be conquered with ease!

Why G Suite Accounts Get Disabled?

A G Suite account may be disabled or suspended in one of three scenarios:

Keep in mind the third scenario is likely to happen when doing cold emailing or email marketing. Google can’t always differentiate real spam emails from cold emails due to the sending pattern of sales automation software, the actual amount of daily sent emails, and their content (links, pictures, files).

For cold emailing, it’s recommended to know what generally triggers spam filters and the specific sending rules of your email service provider (ESP).

Restoring a Disabled G Suite Account

As an administrator for your organization's Google Workspace or Cloud Identity service, you can restore suspended user accounts that were:

  • Suspended by you or another administrator to temporarily block their access.
  • Automatically suspended by Google systems for being at risk.
  • Temporarily restricted from using their Gmail account for exceeding account limits (Google Workspace only).
  • Automatically suspended from Gmail for potential spam abuse (Google Workspace only).
Once restored, users can sign in and access all their services and data.

You can find detailed instructions provided on the Google support page.

In case you’re an employee whose workspace email account is disabled, you can simply reach out to your admin to take over this part.

Google Admin Disabled

Other situations are trickier, particularly if the G Suite admin account has been suspended. This typically happens following missed payments and expired yearly contracts. Still, it can also happen if the account was bought via a Google reseller or when an account was transferred as part of a corporate acquisition.

If the account has merely been suspended because of missed payments or expired contracts, these issues can be simply resolved by adjusting payment options, renewing an expired domain registration, or reinstating an Annual Plan contract.

If you’re in the admin position of your company and google disabled your admin account, we recommend reaching out to Google directly if they haven’t already.

Before You Start Sending Emails Again…

After you have access to your G Suite account again, make sure to sign in to your sales automation or campaign tool. Usually, with your email, connected tools are disconnected when your account is disabled.

Additionally, make sure to check your email deliverability. If google flagged you as spam before, you should specifically check your Sender Score. If your sender score is bad, you must start warming it up.

It is not recommended to send cold emails without first performing a proper warm-up phase. This means that you should start with the warm-up phase, connect all your tools (but make sure that the sending is paused), and check your deliverability regularly, and only then you can start sending cold emails again.

Warm is the right tool for this situation with its automated campaign sending. The tool will positively interact with your emails, which automatically increases your sender score and deliverability.


Especially in connection with cold emailing and email marketing, your Google account can be disabled. However, this doesn’t mean your account is deleted.

Reach out to the admin, who can simply restore your account.

You should contact Google immediately to fix the problem if the admin account is deleted.
