This article will teach you how to whitelabel your SendGrid SMTP. This will help improve deliverability from your SendGrid SMTP to ensure emails make it to your contacts' inbox.
What you need:
Step 1. Set up Domain Authentication
- In SendGrid, click on Settings.
- Click on Sender Authentication.
- Click on Get Started or "Authenticate Your Domain."
- Select your DNS host from the drop down menu.
- Select Yes or No for Link Branding.
- Click Next.
- Enter your Domain. (Do not include www or http://www i.e., if you are sending an email from email@example.com, you would enter "yourdomain.com").
- Select Advanced Settings. (Optional)
- Click on Next.
Step 2. Add CNAME Records To DNS Host
- This process may vary depending on your domain host (example shown using a ClickFunnels domain).
- In Clickfunnels, select Domains from the Account Menu.
- Click the three dots next to your domain and click "Edit."
- Click on Expand next to Edit Zone Records.
- Scroll down to the bottom and select CNAME from the Type drop down.
- Enter the Name (Host) from SendGrid (leave out your domain).
- Enter the Value (Data) from SendGrid.
- Click "Save."
- Repeat this process for all 3 CNAME records from Sendgrid.
Step 3. Verify your DNS
- In SendGrid, on the same DNS page, click "Verify."
- Ensure all records turn green.
Note: If only half of your CNAME records verify, you may have to wait longer. Domain records can take up to 48 hours to fully verify. Click here for more troubleshooting information from SendGrid.
