    Twilio SendGridとNode.jsを使用してメール問い合わせフォームを構築 How to build an email contact form with SendGrid and Node JP

    この記事はPhil Nashこちらで公開した記事(英語)を日本語化したものです。

    Webサイトにメールアドレスを公開すると、スクレーピングされ、スパムに使用されるおそれがあります。この問題を回避し、同時に自身のWebサイトからメールで問い合わせを受け取れるようにする方法の一つとして、問い合わせフォームを構築することがあります。

    本稿では、Twilio SendGridベースの開発プロジェクトの一例として、ウェブサイト上で問い合わせフォームを構築し、メールアドレスを公開することなく問い合わせのメールを受け取れるようにする方法を説明します。

    プロジェクトはTwilio Functionsも使って構築しますが、本稿でご紹介するコードはあらゆるNode.js環境での使用に対応しています。

    APIによるメール送信との違い

    ユーザーがお問合せフォームを送信した際は、お問合せフォームを入力した人のメールアドレスを送信元とするメールがウェブサイト運営者に送信されることがよくあります。しかし、メール送信に関する信頼性を維持するため、Twilio SendGridは単一送信元として検証されたアドレス、または認証済みのドメインからの送信しか許可しません。

    そのため、提供されたメールアドレスをfromアドレスとして使用する代わりに、reply-toアドレスに設定できます。この方法であれば、Twilio SendGridは認証済みメールアドレスからメールを送信する一方で、受信 …

    How to build an email contact form with SendGrid and Node.js How to build an email contact form with SendGrid and Node.js

    Displaying your email address on a website can result in your email being scraped and used for spam. One way to get around this, but still allow people to contact you from your website, is to build a contact form.

    In this post you will build a contact form using SendGrid to deliver emails to your inbox without exposing your email address.

    You will build the project with Twilio Functions, but you could adapt the code to use in any Node.js environment.

    How is this different to sending an email with an API?

    When someone fills in a contact form, you might expect to receive an email in your inbox from their email address. However, to maintain a good email sending reputation, SendGrid only allows you to send emails from addresses that you have verified individually or from domains you have authenticated.

    So, instead of using the submitted …

    How to Send SMTP Emails in Node.js With SendGrid Send Email in Node.js Using SMTP with Twilio SendGrid

    When it comes to email services in application development, a hosted email API – such as Twilio SendGrid – is the way to go as it offers ways to customize the setup to your needs. However, you may want to send emails through SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) if it is already on your existing platform and since it is an email standard that's used universally. Luckily, Twilio SendGrid offers an SMTP Relay service without having to set up your own server. You’ll also still have access to in-depth metrics, analytics tracking, increased deliverability rates and even more SendGrid features through the X-SMTPAPI header.

    In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to send out emails through Twilio SendGrid’s SMTP Relay in Node.js.

    If you have the option and are still deciding whether to integrate SendGrid through our API or SMTP Relay, we highly recommend using our Web API. SMTP …

    Twilio Emailを数字で見る〜'21年秋冬ホリデーシーズン TSG-Email-BFCM-2021-jp

    この記事は、インダストリーマーケティング担当のLen Shneyderが、こちら(英語)で執筆した記事を日本語化したものです。

    11月末の米国のホリデーシーズンを振り返る時期になりました。Eメールの世界では、このホリデーシーズン(ブラックフライデーとサイバーマンデー)は、スポーツの世界のワールドカップ、スーパーボウル、スタンレーカップ、ワールドシリーズ、オリンピックなどが同時並行で実施されるような規模の出来事(あくまでも例えです 😁)として捉えられます。2021年のホリデーシーズンは2020年に比べれば、人びとのショッピングに対する期待度の点で確かに改善されていると言えますが、パンデミック前の2019年とは比べものになりません。とはいえ、2019年から今年2021年のホリデーシーズンにおいて一貫しているのは、顧客を惹きつけ、ホリデーショッピングシーズンを盛り上げる手段として、Eメールに驚くほど依存していることです。

    2021年の配信性能および経年比較

    Twilio SendGridにおけるEメールトラフィックの処理量は、今年2021年も大幅に伸長しました。Twilio SendGridプラットフォームはブラックフライデー(BF)に約68億通、サイバーマンデー(CM)に70億通超のEメールを処理しましたが、これは2020年からの対前年比(YoY)で各々16.9%、22.2%の伸びとなっています。Twilio SendGridプラットフォームは、1時間あたり5.3億APIリクエストという再繁時バーストレートを維持しながら、優れたパフォーマンスを発揮しました。 …

    A Year of 1 Trillion Emails: The Customers Who Sent Them A YEAR OF 1 TRILLION EMAILS - 2340x1000 - NO TEXT@2x.png

    This article originally appeared on the Twilio SendGrid blog.

    During a year of change, email has become an even more crucial connection between businesses and their customers. Email engagement increased by 200% in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    In 2020, Twilio SendGrid kept businesses connected to their customers by reliably processing over 1 trillion emails. Imagine 1 trillion letter-sized pieces of paper lined up end to end. That’s 173 million miles—long enough to travel to Mars and back when it's closest to Earth. Twice!

    This incredible feat would not have been possible without our customers: senders both large and small who trusted us to deliver email to their customers. To celebrate this milestone, here’s a look at a few …
