We provide a tool to brand your emails in Universal App. However, it is important that your emails are well optimized and safe from spam detection. To make sure your emails arrive reliably in your readers' inbox, you should consider using a specialized service for email delivery. Below are the options you have in the Universal App admin:

  • Mailgun: Very reliable and affordable.

  • Sendgrid: Very reliable and currently the biggest service in the market.

  • SMTP: If you have your own company email setup, this is the way to go.

Let's follow the steps below to guide you through connecting your Email Deliver service in the Universal App admin.

Mailgun

  1. Go to Tools > Emails in your left-hand section.

  2. After typing in the email sender, click the dropdown in the Email Provider.

  3. Select Mailgun.

  4. Fill in the API Key and Domain fields. Click Save Changes.

      1. Navigate towards the top-right of the page next to your username, click the down-arrow, and then select the API Keys option. Alternatively, you can use this direct link.

      2. Click on the eyeicon to make the full API key visible.

      3. Copy the private key.

    1. For the domain field, please use a Sending Domain you have set up in Mailgun.

Sendgrid

  1. Go to Tools > Emails in your left-hand section.

  2. After typing in the email sender, click the dropdown in the Email Provider.

  3. Select Sendgrid.

  4. Fill in the API Key, and click Save Changes.

  1. Navigate to Settings on the left navigation bar, and then select API Keys.

  2. Click Create API Key.

  3. Give your API key a name.

  4. Select Full Access, Restricted Access, or Billing Access.

  5. If you're selecting Restricted Access, or Billing Access, select the specific permissions to give each category. For more information, see API key permissions.

  6. Click Create & View.

  7. Copy your API key somewhere safe. For security reasons, do not put it directly in your code, or commit it somewhere public like GitHub.

SMTP

For this article, we are using GoDaddy as the email provider.

  1. Go to Tools > Emails in your left-hand section.

  2. After typing in the email sender, click the dropdown in the Email Provider.

  3. Select SMTP.

  4. Fill in the username, password, Host, and Port.

  5. Toggle on/off the secure button.

    1. If the email provider shows you the secure and the insecure settings, please select them accordingly.

    2. However, if your email provider doesn't show anything for the secure setting, please toggle on the button. You can always switch it back if it doesn't work.

For GoDaddy, below are the host and the port.

  • Host (SMTP): smtpout.secureserver.net

  • Port SSL: 465 atau 587
