How To Find Sendgrid Smtp

If you have chosen to use SendGrid as your email service provider, it is essential to have your SMTP settings in order to set up your email client. SMTP, or Simple Mail Transfer Protocol, is the widely accepted protocol for transmitting emails over the Internet.

Let’s walk you through how to find these settings in your SendGrid account.

Step 1: Log Into Your SendGrid Account

The first step is to log in to your SendGrid account. Once you have logged in, you will be redirected to the dashboard.

Step 2: Navigate to SMTP Relay Settings

In your dashboard, go to the “Settings” menu on the left side of the page, then select “SMTP Relay”.

Step 3: Create API Key

You’ll need to create a new API key. Click on “Create Key” and give it a name. Then click on “Create & View”.

Step 4: Note Down SMTP Settings

After creating the key, you will be presented with your SendGrid SMTP settings. These include the SMTP server name, the port, and your API Key, which serves as the password. Make sure to note these down before closing the page, as you won’t be able to view the API Key again.

Step 5: Configure Your Email Client

Once you have these settings, you can configure your email client. Depending on the client, you may need to enter them in a specific format. Here is a general format for entering these settings:

SMTP Server:
Port: 587
Username: apikey
Password: YOUR_API_KEY

Replace “YOUR_API_KEY” with the API Key you noted down earlier.

That’s it! You have successfully found your SendGrid SMTP settings. Now you can send emails using SendGrid from your email client. Remember, it’s crucial not to share your API Key with anyone to prevent unauthorized access to your SendGrid account.

If you have further issues or need more guidance, you can always refer to SendGrid’s official documentation or reach out their support team.
