Using SparkPost with Thunder Mailer

April 29, 2017 Contributors

The following steps will walk you through using SparkPost with Thunder Mailer.

Click on ‘Connections’ and bring up the list of SMTP servers:

Click on the green ‘+’ symbol to create a new SMTP server profile and enter the information as shown:

  • Set the SMTP Mail Server name to smtp.sparkpostmail.com
  • Set the user name to SMTP_Injection
  • Set the password to an API key you have created from your SparkPost account that has the ‘Send via SMTP’ permission enabled.
  • Set the SMTP port to 587 (TLS will be enabled automatically by Thunder Mailer)

Also remember that your “From address” needs to be from a domain that you’ve set up as a valid sending domain in SparkPost and is listed as ‘Ready to Send’

Happy Sending!
