    We have decided to end our mail constantly getting roundfiled into the trash and spam bins of providers and went with SendGrid.

    Are there any support docs on the Amember side on how to set this up properly with SendGrid?? There are many setting options in sendgrid and Id like to make the most out of the API there.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello,

    aMember supports SendGrid out of the box. You just need to fill in credentials of your SendGrid account:
    aMember CP -> Configuration -> Setup/Configuration -> Email (Email Sending Method)

    And using the Sendgrid3 newsletters plugin?

    I created an API key, entered it at Setup/Configuration : : Sendgrid3
    But when I click the link as suggested in the yellow box:
    I get an error:
    The log file shows:
    Code:
    Am_Newsletter_Plugin_Sendgrid3 : SendGrid: https://api.sendgrid.com/v3/contactdb/lists, method = GET, params=, status=403, resp = {"errors":[{"field":null,"message":"access forbidden"}]}
