To get started, navigate to Marketing > Settings.
From here you can select from two different types of Email Sending Method through the dropdown menu, depending on your needs:
By selecting SMTP, you can input credentials from a 3rd party email sending service (such as MailGun, SendGrid, Amazon SES, etc.). You can use this option if you already have an account with a separate SMTP provider, and want to use those same credentials to send your platform Marketing emails.
Here are two common providers, and instructions that help identify your correct SMTP settings:
If you do not already have SMTP credentials to use, you can request a dedicated sending IP address from the platform team. Using this option, we will create a new completely white-labeled sending IP specifically for your account via SendGrid, and apply it to your account for use with all of your platform Marketing email sending.
To get started with a new dedicated IP, simply select "IP" from the Email Sending Method dropdown menu and then click the Request IP button. A member of our Team will receive and review the request, and you will be notified via email when the request has been approved and processed. Once approved, your dedicated sending IP will automatically appear in your Email Sending settings.

Once this is done, you will need to use the same email that you set during this step.
Navigate to Flyout Menu > Email Branding.
The email that you specify under From Email is what you will need.
Back in Marketing > Settings, ensure that the email addresses are identical.
