To leverage from SparkPost functionality and features, you may want to connect to Folderly for maintenance procedures.

The connection process will consist of two steps: SMTP credentials creation in the SparkPost web app and mailbox connection with Folderly.

First, you need to create SMTP Password which is a specific API-key for your SparkPost sender account.

From your SparkPost dashboard go to Configuration section -> API Keys (1-2). Then, click the [Create API Key] button (3).

Here, you can customize a new API Key:

  • (4) give it a meaningful name (used only within the SparkPost API keys list);

  • (5) customize API permissions;

  • (6) make sure to select the 'Send via SMTP' permission.

Click the [Create API Key] button (7) to save API key. You will be redirected back to the API keys list and an announcement with your new created API key will pop-up. Make sure to copy and save this key, we will need it to connect with Folderly.

Now, go to your Folderly user cabinet. To connect a domain with Folderly, on the home page click the [Add mailbox] button. Select "SPARKPOST" and click [Next step].

Enter the API Key you created within SparkPost in the "SMTP password" field.

The last step of the setup is to configure the mailbox. Fill-in the fields:

  1. "Email address" β€” Mailgun Sender Email, used for marketing campaigns;

  2. "Sender name" β€” company or your name. Appears in the 'From' field of the recipient's mailbox.

Click the [Next step] button to connect your mailbox.
