Settings - Inbound Parse

Twilio SendGrid’s Inbound Parse Webhook allows you to receive emails as multipart/form-data at a URL of your choosing. SendGrid will grab the content, attachments, and the headers from any email it receives for your specified hostname.

See "Setting up the Inbound Parse Webhook" for help configuring the Webhook. You can also manage the Inbound Parse Webhook in the Twilio SendGrid App.

To begin processing email using SendGrid's Inbound Parse Webhook, you will have to setup MX Records, choose the hostname (or receiving domain) that will be receiving the emails you want to parse, and define the URL where you want to POST your parsed emails. If you do not have access to your domain's DNS records, you must work with someone in your organization who does.

Delete a parse setting

DELETE /user/webhooks/parse/settings/{hostname}

This endpoint allows you to delete a specific inbound parse setting by hostname.

You can retrieve all your Inbound Parse settings and their associated host names with the "Retrieve all parse settings" endpoint.
