Mailgun Setup

Mailgun is an easy-to-use and very cost effective transactional email provider with great analytics tools. You can get started for free without having to sign up for a subscription.

There is a full suite of pre-built HTML emails in the /emails directory.

1. Register a Mailgun Account
