How To Send Emails From Sendgrid

SendGrid is a dependable cloud-based platform that offers secure delivery of transactional emails, scalability, real-time tracking, and convenient APIs for seamless integration. In this blog post, we will demonstrate how to use SendGrid to send emails.

Setting up your SendGrid Account

Firstly, you need to create an account on SendGrid. Once you’ve signed up, navigate to the API Keys section under the Settings menu. Click on “Create API Key”, give it a name, and then select “Full Access”. After clicking on “Create & View”, copy the API key because you will need it later.

Installing SendGrid Library

For this tutorial, we will use the SendGrid Python library. To install this, open your terminal or command prompt and type:

pip install sendgrid

Sending Emails with SendGrid

Now let’s get to the fun part, sending emails with SendGrid. Here is a basic example:

    import sendgrid
    from sendgrid.helpers.mail import Mail

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

    email_from = Mail(from_email='[email protected]', to_emails='[email protected]', subject='Sending with SendGrid is Fun', plain_text_content='and easy to do anywhere, even with Python')

        response = sg.send(email_from)
    except Exception as e:

Replace ‘YOUR_API_KEY’ with the API key you generated earlier. Also, replace ‘[email protected]’ and ‘[email protected]’ with your email and the recipient’s email respectively.


That’s it! You’ve just sent an email using SendGrid. The service offers a lot more features than what we covered in this post. You can customize your emails with HTML content, attachments, and even use SendGrid’s template engine. For more information, refer to the official SendGrid documentation.
