SendGrid makes sending emails possible without the use of email servers.


  1. SendGrid API Key: Obtain an API key from SendGrid by signing up for an account and creating a new API key. This key is required to authenticate your requests when using the SendGrid Connector.

  2. Environment Setup: Ensure you have a development environment capable of making HTTP requests to external APIs. This could involve using programming languages like Python, JavaScript, or any language that supports HTTP requests.
