How To Install Mailjet Email Service in Azure¶
Log into your Azure account, then click on ‘New’.
Once there, enter ‘Mailjet’ in the search bar and select the ‘Mailjet Email Service’ result:
Click on ‘Create’ to start the sign-up.
You will now need to submit a ‘Name’ to identify the Mailjet Email Service in your Azure settings. The name needs to be between 2 and 64 characters long and alphanumeric. It must start with a letter.
Select your ‘Subscription’.
- Choose an existing ‘Resource Group’ for the Mailjet Email Service, or create a new one. Keep in mind that the Resource Group name should be up to 90 characters long, can only include alphanumeric characters, periods, underscores, hyphens and parenthesis. It cannot end in a period.
- Select your ‘Location’.
Choose a ‘Pricing Tier’. When you click on each plan, you will see the features it contains. There will also be an option for you to enter a promotional code, in case you have one. After reviewing the features and entering the code, click on ‘OK’ and then on ‘Select’ to submit your choice.
Click on ‘Review Legal Terms’. Read and review the Terms and click on ‘Purchase’ to accept them.
Tick the ‘Pin to dashboard’ checkbox to be able to find the Mailjet resource more easily after the deployment.
Click on ‘Create’ to start the deployment.
Once the deployment has finished, you will see a ‘Deployment Succeeded’ pop-up notification. You will be able to find the Mailjet resource on the Dashboard, if the ‘Pin to Dashboard’ option has been selected during the setup. Otherwise, you will find it in the ‘All Resources’ section of the main menu.
Any status updates or errors encountered during the deployment will be listed in the ‘Notifications’ area on the Azure home screen.
How to Activate your Mailjet Account¶
All new accounts get activated immediately so you can access your resource and start creating awesome еmail campaigns right away.
However, to warm-up and protect the sending reputation of your brand new Azure Mailjet account, your sending bandwidth is limited at the beginning but will progressively increase over time.
Should you need a high amount of sending bandwidth from the start, please note that this requires a custom warm-up and monitoring plan and could require the assistance of our Support Team. To get in touch and know what your options are, please contact us anytime with the following information:
- Full name
- Email – very important so we can get in touch with you with regards to the status of your warm-up process
- Website URL
- What type of emails you plan on sending (transactional, notification, bulk marketing emails, etc.)
- Estimated email volume you plan on sending per month
- Sending frequency and any other sending patterns your email activity may have (i.e. my application will regularly send emails over time OR my application generally sends lots of emails on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with the peak sending being 200k emails in one hour)
The above allows our Support Team to optimize the configuration of your account and in the case of migrating over a high volume of email from a different provider to Mailjet, also creating a custom warm-up and monitoring plan to ensure that your switch to Mailjet is a smooth process and avoids any turbulence.
How to Find Your Mailjet API Keys¶
Access the Mailjet configuration screen from Azure, then click on ‘Manage’.
You will arrive at your ‘Mailjet Account Settings’ page.
Under ‘REST API’, click on ‘Master API key & Sub API key management’.
You will see your ‘Public’ and ‘Secret API Key’ here. You will also see any Sub-account API Keys that may have been added.
How to Configure Mailjet for Use¶
Once Mailjet is deployed successfully, you will need to complete several steps on the Mailjet side to be able to send your first email.
Click on ‘Manage’ to access your Mailjet Account Settings.
Validate a Sender Address for your newly provisioned Mailjet resource. To do this, click on ‘Add a Sender Domain or Address’ from your Account page.
You will not be able to send any emails before your Sender email address or domain is registered and validated.
Then add a new sender address. If you want to use many email addresses linked to the same top level domain, you can add the domain instead. For more information, please see the Mailjet FAQ.
It is highly recommended to also configure your SPF and DKIM records to highly improve the deliverability of your emails.
You can also decide whether or not to use Mailjet’s open and click tracking (by default the ‘open’ and ‘click’ tracking is activated). To change your tracking, simply click on ‘Settings’ in the ‘Account’ Section → ‘Account Preferences’.
You can also customize the tracking links to improve your deliverability and make it more attractive to your customers.
