Sending e-mails with Sendgrid

To send e-mails in a production environment, use services like Sendgrid.

Verify the e-mail address on the Sender Management page and create the SendGrid API key on the API keys page.

import nodemailer from 'nodemailer';

(async () => {
  const emailConfiguration = {
    auth: {
      user: process.env.EMAIL_USERNAME, // 'apikey'
      pass: process.env.EMAIL_PASSWORD
    host: process.env.EMAIL_HOST, // ''
    port: process.env.EMAIL_PORT, // 465
    secure: process.env.EMAIL_SECURE, // true

  const transport = nodemailer.createTransport(emailConfiguration);

  const info = await transport.sendMail({
    from: '"Sender" <>',
    to: ',',
    subject: 'Subject',
    text: 'Text',
    html: '<b>Text</b>'

  console.log('Message sent: %s', info.messageId);
