How To Remove Email In Sendgrid

SendGrid is an SMTP provider located in the cloud which enables email sending without the need for email server maintenance. Its robust platform offers efficient email list management and email sending capabilities. However, at times you may need to delete an email address from your list, whether it is due to unsubscribe requests, high bounce rates, or routine list upkeep. Being familiar with the process of removing an email from SendGrid is crucial for effectively managing your email campaigns.

Removing Email Addresses Manually

Removing an email address manually in SendGrid is straightforward. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Login to your SendGrid account.
  2. Go to the ‘Marketing’ section and then select ‘Contacts’.
  3. Find the email address you want to remove. You can use the search bar at the top of the page.
  4. Once you find the email address, click on it.
  5. Click on ‘Actions’, then ‘Delete’.
  6. Confirm your action by clicking ‘Delete’ on the popup.

Removing Email Addresses Using SendGrid API

If you have a large number of emails to remove, it might be more efficient to use the SendGrid API. Here is a simple way to do that using Python:

    import sendgrid
    from sendgrid.helpers.mail import Mail, Email, To, Content

    sg = sendgrid.SendGridAPIClient(api_key='your_sendgrid_api_key')

    data = {
        "emails": ["[email protected]"]

    response = sg.client.suppression.bounces.delete(request_body=data)

Ensure you replace your_sendgrid_api_key with your actual SendGrid API Key and [email protected] with the email address you want to remove.


Whether you want to manually remove an email address or prefer to use the API, both methods are relatively straightforward in SendGrid. Follow these steps to ensure you can effectively manage your send list and maintain a healthy email database for your campaigns.
