MailerSend has been extremely reliable and fast, with a more generous free tier and no hassle for my legitimate use of the software as a transactional system. Sendgrid required a lot of forms and pleading to use for my own clients.
Frank B. CEO, Software Company
The ease of integration is super. I write predominantly in Golang for back-end services, and I had MailerSend integrated in about sixty seconds flat. I've moved to MailerSend for all transactional email services.
David G. Developer, Small business
MailerSend's free tier is amazing and allows us to prototype and start using the service without any concern about cost. Additionally, the interface is super clean and the integration was sooooo easy.
Simão F. Software Engineer, Lampant
MailerSend gives us peace of mind. We never worry about our emails. All the work happens in the background—always addressing our needs.
Raphaël Abadie CTO, CareSend

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the setup process complicated?

We like to keep things simple. We provide clear, comprehensive documentation and 7 SDK libraries that are updated monthly. Developers can simply plug in our API or SMTP relay and MailerSend will do the rest while low-coders can use our extensive library of integrations to connect their apps.

The goal of MailerSend’s email service is to take the hassle out of transactional email, that’s why we’ve made it easy to set up and maintain.

How will you make my transactional emails secure?

MailerSend’s email delivery service is built on a secure email infrastructure, while our mail servers protect your email sendings with SPF, DKIM and DMARC security protocols. You can always be confident that your sending domain is safe from unauthorized sendings and your sender reputation remains intact.

What options are available for editing emails?

We make it easy for users of all technical abilities to design professional, responsive transactional emails. The Rich Text and drag & drop editors make it easy to customize templates and create designs from scratch without the need for coding. The HTML editor is available for users who prefer to use their own code. All options are natively responsive.

Can I get a dedicated IP address?

Dedicated IPs are available to high-volume senders, but rest assured that our deliverability team is working hard to ensure that every account gets the best email deliverability possible. If you’d like to discuss whether a dedicated IP would be right for your business, get in touch.

What kind of support will you offer to my business?

You'll get 24/7 support, including live chat and priority support for Premium accounts, from an award-winning customer service team. 

We listen to and are in constant communication with our clients—not only do we pay close attention to the needs of all customers to fix any issues, we also take on your feedback in order to evolve our product and services.
