Are you looking to integrate a Mailjet account with Outbound Automation by boberdoo? You’ve come to the right place. Mailjet is one of the top ESPs around and offers a limited free usage account as well. Follow the steps below to properly configure and integrate your Mailjet account with Outbound Automation.
Step 1: Create a Mailjet Account
If you already have a Mailjet account, skip to step 2. If you’d like to set up a new Mailjet account, click the link above. Follow the instructions to get signed up and verified. The free account gives you 6,000 email sends/month, but limits you to only 200 sends/day. If necessary, you can upgrade your account after signing up.
Step 2: Locate Your API Key
Once you’ve clicked on the link in your e-mail and activated your account, you’ll come to this page:
Choose the option on the right to Configure Your SMTP Relay or the Send API. Right away you’ll be greeted by your Username (API Key) and Password (Secret Key). Copy these down and keep them somewhere safe. You can also access these keys at any time. From the Mailjet dashboard click Edit Domain Settings from the Quick setup menu to display these keys. You will use these keys when adding your Mailjet account to Outbound Automation (Step 5).
Step 3: Enable Event Tracking
Next, you must enable event tracking within your Mailjet account so it can relay the correct information to Outbound Automation. In the upper right hand corner of your Mailjet dashboard, select My Account. In the Rest API table, select Event tracking (triggers). In the Endpoint URL box, paste this exact URL: https://marketingapi.boberdoo.com/i/espgw/mailjet
Next, select the All events checkbox to enable event tracking for every event. Send a test to make sure everything is set up correctly and click Save. Once complete, your Event tracking page should look identical to the image below.
Step 4: Add a Sender Address
To send with your Mailjet account, you must first add all the sender addresses (from email addresses) you plan on sending as. From your Mailjet dashboard, click Edit Sender addresses from the Quick setup menu. The email address you used to create your account will already be added to your list of sender addresses. Click Add A Sender Address to add and verify additional addresses. Alternatively, you can add a domain to allow you to send from any email address using your validated domain. Note: when using Mailjet to send from Outbound Automation, your From Line/From Email must be one of the Sender Addresses (or validated domain) or Mailjet will not send your email.
Step 5: Add Your Mailjet Account to Outbound Automation
For this step, you will use the API key and Secret Key from step 2. First, head to Outbound Automation and click the Setup tab. From here, locate the Email Service Providers box and click the green Add New ESP button. Select Mailjet from the Email Provider dropdown and choose a name for your ESP. This name will be used for internal reference and organization only. Finally copy your API Key and API Secret into the fields and click Save ESP Account.
Step 6: Specify Your Mailjet Daily Limit
Unlike most ESPs, Mailjet will allow you to schedule an unlimited amount of emails per day. However, if you reach your daily send limit within Mailjet, the ESP will not fail. Instead, it will enter every email that exceeds your daily limit into a pending status. Once your 24-hour limit expires, it will attempt to send these emails again. Because of this, Mailjet will never fail over to your backup ESP. We strongly recommend setting your Mailjet daily send limit in the Setup tab to match whatever daily Mailjet send limit. For Mailjet’s free account, this is 200 emails/day.
