Every app needs email, even the ones we build regularly send some kind, be it signup, reset passwords or general announcements, it's all gotta come from somewhere. SendGrid have been a very reliable platform in the past, and we've had no issues so far.
SendGrid came to our attention as a great way of handling outgoing e-mail communication. Mass capabilities, spam handling and the sheer power of MailChimp as a vendor made our decision here.
All of our external emails are sent using SendGrid. SendGrid's statistics dashboards help us figure out whether our emails are reaching people, and how much attention is paid to them.
