### Recommended Email Providers for Discourse
We strongly recommend using a dedicated email service. Email server setup and maintenance is _very_ difficult even for experienced system administrators, and getting any part of the complex required email setup wrong means your email won't be delivered, or worse, delivered erratically.
The following are template configurations for email service providers who offer generous free plans that work for most communities.
**Please note that in any email provider, you _must_ verify and use the subdomain, e.g. `discourse.example.com`. If you verify the domain only, e.g. `example.com`, mail will not be configured correctly.**
Enter these values when prompted by `./discourse-setup` per the [install guide](https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL-cloud.md#edit-discourse-configuration):
#### [Mailgun][gun] — 10k emails/month (with credit card)
SMTP server address? smtp.mailgun.org
SMTP user name? [SMTP credentials for your domain under domains tab]
SMTP password? [SMTP credentials for your domain under domains tab]
#### [SendGrid][sg] — 40k emails on a 30 day trial
SMTP server address? smtp.sendgrid.net
SMTP user name? apikey
