How to create a Free SendGrid Account at Azure #Azure #SendGrid #Email #Exchange #SMTP Relay

As we know, starting on November 15, 2017, outbound email messages that are sent directly to external domains (such as outlook.com and gmail.com) from a virtual machine (VM) are made available only to certain subscription types in Microsoft Azure. Outbound SMTP connections that use TCP port 25 were blocked. (Port 25 is primarily used for unauthenticated email delivery.), so you will notice the VM at Azure won’t send out email.

One of solution is using SMTP relay service to send email from VM of Azure, there is a good news for Azure customers, Azure customers can unlock 25,000 free emails each month. Today, I am going to show you how to create a free SendGrid account as SMTP relay to help you send email out successful.
