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

The connection process will consist of two steps: SMTP credentials allocation in the Mailgun user cabinet, and domain connection with Folderly.

First, you need to locate SMTP Login and SMTP Password for your Mailgun sender account.

In your Mailgun user cabinet go to Sending section -> Domain settings (1). Check if the active domain is the one you will connect with Folderly (2). Next, select SMTP Credentials tab (3).

Here, click the [Add new SMTP user] button (4).

Enter a new username (5) and click the [Create SMTP Credential] button (6) to create a SMTP Login to be used for Folderly integration. After you create a user make sure to copy a password for this SMTP user β€” for security reasons Mailgun will show this password only once (7).

Go to your Folderly profile. To connect a mailbox with Folderly, on the home page click the [Add mailbox] button.

Select "Mailgun" in the service providers list. Click [Next step].

  1. Enter the SMTP Username of the SMTP User, created in the Mailgun Domain settings.

  2. Enter the Password you copied when creating an SMTP User in the "SMTP password" field.

  3. Select the SMTP Server Region.


    You can reset a password for SMTP User on the Mailgun Domain settings page if you lost it.

  4. 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. Now you can set up an email template, and start using Folderly.
