# Setting up SendGrid SMTP

Primary SMTP server - smtp.sendgrid.net
SMTP port - 25
Use Secure Protocol - No Encryption (If you want encryption choose "Use SSL" and set SMTP Port to 465)
Under SMTP Authentication, set your username and password (API key):

Username - apikey (actually enter "apikey" for it to work properly)
Password - SendGrid API Key

Keep in mind your password is the API Key not your SendGrid Password!
