Retrieve Email Statistics for Categories

Effective February 1, 2022, Twilio SendGrid will limit the number of stored category statistics available per user. Accounts on a paid plan will be allowed 1,000 categories daily. Accounts on a free plan will be allowed 100 categories daily. For more information about this change, see the Limitations section of our "Working with Categories" page.

GET /categories/stats

This endpoint allows you to retrieve all of your email statistics for each of your categories.

If you do not define any query parameters, this endpoint will return a sum for each category in groups of 10.
