How can I configure eNewsletter to use Sendgrid?

My newsletter campaigns are being blocked by gmail. I have spent a couple of weeks trying to troubleshoot this problem. I am now trying SendGrid to see if this will help. My test emails with sendGrid now work but eNewsletter is not using SendGrid.

How can I configure eNewsletter to use SendGrid?
Do you have any other suggestions for the gmail blocking issue?

    Hi there @antKat,

    Hope you're well today and thanks for your question.

    For using e-Newsletter with SendGrid, it appears you can just use the standard SMTP details

    If you are integrating SendGrid with an existing application, setting up the application to use our SMTP relay is easiest, as it only requires modifying SMTP configuration.

    Change your SMTP username and password to your SendGrid credentials
    Set the server host name to smtp.sendgrid.net
    Use ports 25 or 587 for plain/TLS connections and port 465 for SSL connections

    For the Gmail issue, was it not sending the emails, or were they just blocked at the receiving users end? Was using the Gmail TLS or SSL port? :slight_smile:

    Thanks!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.
