How to Set Up a Mailgun Account for GoHighLevel
If you would like to use Mailgun to send out emails from GoHighLevel, you must first set up an account.
To do this, head to signup.mailgun.com/new/signup.
Creating an account takes less than one minute and is free to do. Ensure you check your inbox to verify your email address before continuing.
Next, in Mailgun, you must add the domain name from which the emails are to be sent, plus any subdomains you wish to use. Also, ensure the region is set to “US” and not “EU.”
Once you have done this, you will be given five DNS records that you must add to your DNS provider (where your domain is hosted). The process for this differs between providers, so if you are unsure how to do it, please contact your DNS provider for assistance.

Is There an Alternative to Mailgun?

GoHighLevel LC – Email
When you first set up an account with GoHighLevel, it automatically defaults to LC – Email.
The setup for this service is much easier since you don’t need to create accounts with any third-party providers. All you need to do is add the domain name that you wish to use, and the service will be available.
GoHighLevel states that LC – Email is cheaper than most major SMTP providers since it charges $0.675 per 1,000 emails. This is compared with $0.80 per 1,000 with Mailgun.
