Infobip Email is a cloud based, all in one communication solution suited for both transactional and marketing message delivery. Use Email to create rich, personalized and responsive emails using the easy to use drag and drop email design editor, or using the HTML editor.
Email messaging is a simple way for ad-hoc one-way communication, or more advanced template management, scheduled sending, or communication flows for one-to-one and one-to-many.
This solution includes reporting, which allows you to create reports around basic statistics, such as open rates, click-through rates and more. Sending emails is done over the web interface, HTTP API or SMTP, which you can read more about in the Technical Specifications.
Rich Design Editor

Build templates and use them as many times as needed to save time and remain consistent. The editor supports the building of rich templates in the UI or through HTML, and send them over the web interface or API.

Before Getting Started
To use any Infobip product, you need to sign up for a free account. See: Create an Account for more details.
Once you create an account, you are automatically enrolled to a free trial until you run out of allocated free credits.
Here are some email-specific details to keep in mind while on the free trial:
- You can use a default email domain, selfserviceib.com that has been preset and will appear automatically once you start creating your communication. Note that once you upgrade the account to the paying one, you'll need to set up your own domain.
Upgrade to a paying account
At any time, you can decide to finish the free trial and upgrade your account. Use the UPGRADE OPTIONS button on the Home page to view available billing options.
Set up a domain
Once you upgrade your account to the paying one, you'll need to set up a domain or subdomain with which you will be sending emails. That domain will be the address which appears in the From field for your recipients. If you have an existing domain, it is recommended to use a subdomain. This is to minimize the potential impact other traffic might have on your main domain. Note that you will still be able to send emails as the main domain when using a subdomain.
If you do not have the domain set up yet, contact your hosting provider to supply it for you, then move on to the next section.
