Find your email provider, select Connect Account, and follow the instructions prompted to integrate your account. Alternatively, you can sign up for a new account with any of our integrated email providers. Please note that it can take up to 24 hours for integration to complete

Mailchimp - An API key is required to set up an integration between Buildout and your account. This is a key that you generate in Mailchimp and enter in Buildout so that Buildout can access your Mailchimp account.

Constant Contact - Connecting Constant Contact is actually really easy. Just click the Constant Contact icon on the email connection page and you will be directed to log into Constant Contact and grant Buildout access.

iContact - Buildout logs into your iContact account using your iContact username and a special password you create specifically for Buildout. Connecting your iContact account to Buildout is a two-step process:

  • First, you log into iContact and create a special password for Buildout.

  • Then you log into Buildout and connect your iContact account using your normal iContact username along with the special password for Buildout.

Youman Media - Connect Youman Media account under the Email tab.

 

That's it! You're ready to start sending Buildout emails through your preferred email provider.
