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.
