Cloud Email Delivery Service, Configuring use of the Cloud Email Delivery Service
If you have been using SMTP to send email to the campus email relays, updating your SMTP configuration is likely to be the easiest way for you to use the Cloud Email Delivery Service
If you would like to use more advanced techniques, an API is also available to developers.
You will need either an API key, or SMTP credentials for authentication, which can be found in your subaccount in the socketlabs portal under Configuration -> Key Manager. Multiple API keys can be generated per subaccount. Each subaccount has one username and password available for an SMTP connection. IP-based authentication is also available, but only upon request and is typically not recommended.
SMTP (easy mode)
API (advanced mode)
API calls to the SocketLabs API are authenticated using the API key that you generated. Authenticate your calls to the SocketLabs API using the
Authorization header with the
Bearer authentication scheme.
Example Bearer authorization header:
Authorization: Bearer YOUR-API-KEY
If your application or system does not support the
Bearer authentication scheme, you may also use the
Basic scheme. If using the
Basic scheme, you may use any string as the username and then your API key as the password. More information about
Basic authentication can be found here.
Example Basic authorization header:
Authorization: Basic YOUR-API-KEY
