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

If you're using the classic UI (options across the top, with a silver background), use the following instructions:

  • Click the Domains tab within your Mailgun Control Panel.
  • On the following page click on your domain.
  • To create additional SMTP credentials click on Manage SMTP Credentials.
    • On the following page, click on New SMTP Credential and enter the SMTP Username, Password, and confirm your password by entering it again.
    • Save the new credential click Create Credential.

If you're using the beta UI (options displayed down the left-hand side on a dark column), use the following instructions:

  • Click on Messages on the left-hand side of your the Mailgun dashboard.
  • On the following page, click on your specific domain.
  • On the following page, click on 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: Your SMTP credential's new password will be displayed on the top-right corner within a green pop-up. Save this password, as it will not be exposed again

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