How To Send Mail Using Sendgrid

Using email is a crucial aspect of our everyday routine, whether it be for personal or work reasons, in today’s technological era. SendGrid is a popular choice for automating email communication, providing an exceptional cloud-based email service that delivers transactional and marketing emails. This blog post will provide instructions on how to use SendGrid to send emails.

Step 1: Create a SendGrid Account

Firstly, you need to have a SendGrid account. You can create one by visiting the SendGrid website and signing up for a free or paid account depending on your needs.

Step 2: Get Your API Key

Once your account is set up, you need to get your SendGrid API Key. This key will be used to authenticate your application with SendGrid. To get your API Key, navigate to the Settings section of your SendGrid Dashboard and click on API Keys.

Step 3: Install SendGrid Library

Next, you need to install the SendGrid library in your project. If you are using Node.js, you can install it using npm (Node Package Manager) by running the following command:

    npm install @sendgrid/mail

Step 4: Sending an Email

After setting up your SendGrid account, obtaining your API key, and installing the necessary libraries, you are now ready to send an email. The code snippet below shows you how you can send an email using SendGrid.

    const sgMail = require('@sendgrid/mail');


    const msg = {
      to: '[email protected]',
      from: '[email protected]',
      subject: 'Sending with SendGrid is Fun',
      text: 'and easy to do anywhere, even with Node.js',
      html: '<strong>and easy to do anywhere, even with Node.js</strong>',


Just replace ‘Your_SendGrid_API_Key’ with your actual SendGrid API Key and fill in the rest of the msg object with your desired email content.


That’s it! You’ve just learned how to send an email using SendGrid. Remember, it’s important to keep your API Key secure and to monitor your email usage to avoid hitting your limit, particularly if you’re on a free plan. Happy emailing!
