Setting Up Transactional Email
txnhog currently supports sending transactional email messages via Mailgun and AmazonSES. You'll need to setup your provider, if you haven't already, and then you're ready to proceed linking it to txnhog.

Mailgun

After you have added a sending domain to Mailgun, and verified the DNS entries, you're ready to start sending on txnhog.
Firstly, select Mailgun as the "Email Transport Provider" on the txnhog Settings page, and you'll need your API key from Mailgun, which you can retrieve here (example above). Make sure to expand the key before copying it by clicking the eye icon to the right of the key.
Now you can add the "Email From Name" your transactional emails will come from, along with your Mailgun API key.
Add the domain you wish tp send your emails from (this must be the domain you verified on Mailgun), and the email address you'll send from (this address must be using the domain you verified).
Hit Save, and txnhog will attempt to verify your settings with Mailgun. If everything looks good, you'll be all set. If not, txnhog will return a message telling you what needs to be corrected.
If everything saved and connected, it's time to setup your Transactional SMS.

AmazonSES

After you have added a sending domain to AmazonSES, and verified the DNS entries, you'll need to generate keys before you're ready to start sending on txnhog. We recommend you use a IAMI for your keys. Learn more at Amazon. Your IAMI user should look something like the below:
Firstly, select AmazonSES as the "Email Transport Provider" on the txnhog Settings page, and you'll need your Access Key ID and Secret Access Key from you created with the IAMI user.
Now you can add the "Email From Name" your transactional emails will come from, along with your AmazonSES Keys.
Next, add the appropriate sending region for your AmazonSES emails. You can See a list of Amazon Regions heres.
Finally add the email name, and domain your emails will come from. This must be a *verified* domain on AmazonSES and must NOT be in the AmazonSES sandbox. If your domain is in the sandbox, you will need to provide a little information to Amazon about what kinds of emails you intend to send, and what your expected volume will be.
Hit Save, and txnhog will attempt to verify your settings with Amazon. If everything looks good, you'll be all set. If not, txnhog will return a message telling you what needs to be corrected.
If everything saved and connected, it's time to setup your Transactional SMS.
