Adding and setting up a Mail Server to your Mailgems account is a breeze.
1. Login to your account and go to dashboard
2. Click on Create a Mail server, you will see the available services that you can integrate with your Mailgems account.
3. Select the service that you wish to integrate and click on it. You will be directed to the setup page for that service.
4. To setup the service for integration, you will have to add the SMTP credentials / API key so that the mails can be relayed to the SMTP service of your choice from your Mailgems account. You can name the credentials that you are adding and add the type for the same, API or SMTP, and hit Save.
5. Next move to adding the domains using which you want to send the mails to your customers. Click on the “Domains” tab.
6. Click on “Add a Domain”, you will get a text box to add your domain. Enter the domain you want to use to send the emails and click on “Save”.
7. You will then get option to setup the DNS for your domain, where you will have to add the SPF record, DKIM record and the return path to your root of domain. All these help to assure the deliverability of your mails.
At any point of time, you can click on the “Check my records are correct” to check of the setup done by you is correct or not or if anything is pending in the domain setup from your end.
8. Once the domain setup is done correctly, you will get green ticks for all the steps just like shown below
9. To test the integration, click on the messages tab and select “Send Message”. Any message you send will show up in the inbox of the receiver and also the “Outgoing Messages” tab here.
And you are done. You can now start sending those transactional emails to your customers. A successfully setup Mailgems account must look something similar to what is shown below.
