Creating And Sending Your Emails

Summary

Introduction

In this quick start guide, you will learn how to create and send your first newsletter in a few minutes, and track your campaign results.

Sender Address & Contact List

To send a campaign, you need to have a sender address and contact list ready:

  • Sender Address

    Your login address is your default sender, but you can set up additional addresses and even validate a whole domain. Please remember that you can only use addresses that you own or manage.

  • Contact List

    By default, you have one existing contact list (“MyFirstTest”) which contains your email address. You can create an unlimited number of contact lists with your Mailjet account. You can even personalize your campaigns by adding contact properties (name, age,...) to your contact lists.
