Settings - Mail

Mail Settings instruct SendGrid to apply specific settings to every email that you send over SendGrid’s v3 API or SMTP Relay. These settings include how to embed a custom footer, how to manage blocks, spam, and bounces, and more.

For a full list of Twilio SendGrid's Mail Settings, and what each one does, see our Mail Settings documentation.

You can also manage your Mail Settings in the Twilio SendGrid App

Update forward spam mail settings

Update forward spam mail settings

PATCH /mail_settings/forward_spam

This endpoint allows you to update your current Forward Spam mail settings.

Enabling the Forward Spam setting allows you to specify email addresses to which spam reports will be forwarded. You can set multiple addresses by passing this endpoint a comma separated list of emails in a single string.

{
  "email": "address1@example.com, address2@exapmle.com",
  "enabled": true
}

The Forward Spam setting may also be used to receive emails sent to abuse@ and postmaster@ role addresses if you have authenticated your domain.

For example, if you authenticated example.com as your root domain and set a custom return path of sub for that domain, you could turn on Forward Spam, and any emails sent to abuse@sub.example.com or postmaster@sub.example.com would be forwarded to the email address you entered in the email field.

You can authenticate your domain using the "Authenticate a domain" endpoint or in the Sender Authentication section of the Twilio SendGrid App. You can also configure the Forward Spam mail settings in the Mail Settings section of the Twilio SendGrid App.
