Can I use SendGrid With WebinarJam?

 

With WebinarJam, you can use one of several dedicated SMTP services to send your notifications. We recommend SendGrid, as it is the service we use and has been a great solution. You can even start with a free account, depending on the number of emails you send. See https://sendgrid.com/pricing/

NOTE: Email notifications cannot be edited with the exception of send time unless you verify your phone number or use your own SMTP server to send the notifications.

 

Where Can I add SendGrid to WebinarJam or EverWebinar?

There are actually two ways you can add SendGrid to WebinarJam and EverWebinar. You can choose to add SendGrid to individual webinars or add to your Dashboard so it will be available for all your webinars. This still allows you to choose different email services per webinar, so you blow will see instructions on how to do both.

What Information Do I Need to Add SendGrid to WebinarJam?

SendGrid Credentials

You will see a lot of spaces to add information, so we recommend going to SendGrid Integrate https://sendgrid.com/docs/Integrate/index.html This information should not change, but we recommend checking the page.

Server hostname

The first piece of information you need is the Server hostname / SMTP Server (Marked #1 below). With SendGrid you typically want to use smtp.sendgrid.net. 

NOTE: Make certain you use smtp.sendgrid.NET, while the site is located on com, this setting won't send emails.

SMTP port

Port number / SMTP Port (Marked #2 below) for most accounts you want to use 587. Using other numbers may not send emails. 

Encryption

SendGrid mentions this as connections (Marked #3 below), for most accounts you need TLS.

  2. To SMTP Port (Marked #2 Below), add 587.
  3. To Encryption (Marked #3 Below), select TLS from the dropdown.
