How Do I Create Additional SMTP Credentials?

When managing multiple apps, it is recommended to use different SMTP credentials for each app to separate traffic between servers/apps.

Creating New SMTP Credentials

Inside the Mailgun Control Panel (options displayed down the left-hand side on a dark column), use the following instructions:

  • Click on Sending on the left-hand side of your Mailgun dashboard.
  • On the following page, click on your specific domain.
  • On the following page, click on Domain Settings, then click on SMTP credentials.
  • To update the password, click Reset Password.
  • Confirm your password reset by clicking Reset Password in the pop-up.
  • NOTE: The new SMTP password will be available within a dark-gray notification window that appears in the bottom-right portion of the Control Panel. Save this password in your application and in a secure password manager, as it will not be displayed again

At this point, you can see your newly-created SMTP credential on the domain's credentials page.
