Use the AWS Management Console if you want to reset your password, cancel your account, or manage billing.
To quickly get started with SendGrid:
Warmup your sending - Since ISP spam filters look at volume as a significant factor when determining whether or not you are sending spam, we recommend that you begin sending a low to moderate volume, eventually working your way up to larger volumes. This gives the receiving email providers a chance to closely observe your sending habits and the way your customers treat the emails they receive from you.
There are two plans: AWS Basic, and AWS Pro. For more information, check out our AWS Marketplace page. Here's a monthly view of cost:
You can purchase IP addresses dedicated to your account. Since you are the only one sending email over this IP, your sending practices determine the sender reputation associated with this IP. You can purchase up to 3 IP addresses per month. If you need more than 3 IPs, then you should contact support.
You can only add a Dedicated IP Address if you are on an AWS Pro plan. To upgrade your plan, see Upgrading or Downgrading Your Account.
To add a dedicated IP Address:
Sender authentication shows email providers that SendGrid has your permission to send emails on your behalf. Domain authentication works by pointing DNS entries from your domain registrar to SendGrid, which drastically increases your ability to deliver email and allows you to begin building a sender reputation for your domain and for your IP addresses. For more information domain authentication, see How to Set Up Domain Authentication.
You can only add Subusers if you are on an AWS Pro plan. To upgrade your plan, see Upgrading or Downgrading Your Account. Subusers are SendGrid accounts that belong to a parent account. They have their permissions and credit limits, which you assign as you create the Subusers. Subusers help you segment your email sending and API activity.
To get started with using Subusers, see the Subusers overview.
You can upgrade or downgrade your account from the SendGrid UI.
