Sam's tips on using SendGrid:

  1. CAN-SPAM Act Info: https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/can-spam-act-compliance-guide-business Pay close attention to this part: “Each separate email in violation of the CAN-SPAM Act is subject to penalties of up to $16,000” In a bulk e-mail scenario, that can be disastrous!

  2. SendGrid API Docs: https://sendgrid.com/docs/API_Reference/

  3. Mail tester site: https://www.mail-tester.com/

  4. Some pointers on increasing e-mail deliverability:

    1. White-label domains that send e-mail through SendGrid (https://support.sendgrid.com/hc/en-us/articles/200548228-All-You-Need-to-Know-About-Whitelabeling )

    2. Use http://mail-tester.com to score e-mails transmitted through SendGrid

    3. Always check SPAM reports in the SendGrid dashboard and act on them promptly.
