Think Ministry recommends SendGrid for Platform email. SendGrid provides transactional and bulk email. The platform now supports extended email statuses when utilizing SendGrid for outgoing mail.

There is currently no SendGrid Sync Tool. The MailChimp Sync Tool continues to be fully supported for mailing lists.


Recommended MP Configuration

  • Server:
  • User Name: apikey
  • Password: <api key> (see Generating an API Key)
  • Port: 587
  • SSL/TLS: Optional

If you send Support an API Key, Think Ministry can configure the various email subsystems in MinistryPlatform.

NOTE: MinistryPlatform only uses the SMTP protocol, it does not utilize TLS.
