✉ Sendinblue SMTP A free alternative to Sendgrid mails by Reduble.com

In itself the idea is good! However, I recommend that you use this tool https://mailtester.ninja/ which will make your task much easier :slight_smile:

Hi there,

I’m using your plugin for sending emails from my business email (I’m not using a free gmail account, I’m using the paid “info@mydomain.it”) to my customers.

They’re receiving emails with following fields.
From: info@261661798.t-sender-sib.com
Reply to: info@qreo.it (which is the correct one)

You can find a screenshot below of the workflow I’m using. How can I make the same email that appears in “reply to” also in the “from” field?
My customers, seeing those weird numbers after the @, they think it’s just spam.

Below, you can also see that everything looks correctly done in my settings.

Also, since I’m using a template from Brevo, I’d like to understand better what’s the correct syntax to use both in Brevo and Bubble workflow to make everything works perfectly but in your documentation I haven’t found any example for this kind of workflow, and also I haven’t found anything that explain what to put into the Brevo template for receiving the parameter I will send from Bubble.

Last question: what is the param count used for? I understand how the name could be used but what about the count? and are there any other useful parameters we could use?

Could you please provide some example or some detailed informations?

Thank you!

Bro , why are you using plugin for this ? You want to use Brevo with templates you have created with dynamic values ?

Thanks for replying :slight_smile:

I’m using the plugin cause I need mail automation based on actions occurring within the app.

Yeah I’d like the name in the Brevo template to become parametric and passing the parameter from bubble but I don’t know how to do it in Brevo and what syntax to use in the bubble plugin when using the workflow shown in my previous message.

Also, I’d like to understand what the “param_count” can be used for.

Can you help me? thank you in advance! :slight_smile:

Sure here is how you set it up natively , 1) go to plugins , download bubble api connector
2) In ap connector name the api lets says brevo_api > authentiction type non or self handled
3)Add an api call under that ; request POST
endpoint : https://api.brevo.com/v3/smtp/email
headers ;
key : accept value application/json
key : api-key value : yourapikey
key : content-type : application/json
body type : json
example parse on that body json
“sender”: {
“name”: “username”,
“email”: “username@example.com
“to”: [
“email”: “<go_email>”,
“name”: “<full_receiver>”
“templateId”: 1,
“params”: {
“count”: “<dynamic_count>”

In this example your templateId that you have created in brevo is 1 , and it take only 1 parameter that is params.count . To attach that value in that template go to brevo template 1 , write {{ params.count }} and save the template , reopen it , there you go now it can take count .

If you find my documentation or example troubling or if it gives you error , paste this text to chatgpt and ask where is the problem here , Send a transactional email here is the brevo documentation . You don’t need plugins for this

Hello @f.dannunzio92,

Thanks for reaching out to us.

It seems you are using “Send SMTP Mail + Template” action from our plugin which is structured to define the details of an email that is to be sent programmatically. Here’s a breakdown of its components:

  1. sender_email: Specifies the sender’s email address. This is where the email will appear to be coming from when the recipient receives it.

  2. recipient_email: An array that specifies one or more recipients of the email. Each recipient is represented as an object with an email address.

  3. subject: The subject line of the email.

  4. replyTo_email: Specifies the email address that should be used if the recipient decides to reply to the email. This doesn’t have to be the same as the sender’s email.

  5. params: A set of parameters that can be used within the email template to customize the content. For example, “user” and “count” could be placeholders in the template that are replaced with actual values when the email is sent.

  6. templateId: An identifier for a pre-defined email template. This template would be used to format the email content according to a specified layout and design.

Regarding the purpose of “param count” is that they are used to pass dynamic data to the email template. These values are placeholders within the template that get replaced with actual data when the email is compiled and sent. This allows the template to be reused for different recipients and contexts without modifying the template itself.

  • "user": "<params_user>" - This represents a variable in the email template that will be replaced with the value of <params_user>. For example, if the template has a greeting like “Hello {{user}}”, and "user" in "params" is set to “John”, the resulting email will say “Hello John”.

  • "count": "<params_count>" - Similarly, this is another placeholder in the template that will be replaced with whatever value is assigned to <params_count>. It could be used to convey quantitative information, like the number of items in a cart, days left in a trial period, etc.

Hope this information will prove helpfull to you, please let us know about your progress. :pray:

Looking forward to your reply.

Still can’t manage to make it work.
I’m attaching a couple of screenshots from my workflow and from the Brevo template. There’s some mistakes for sure because the bubble app is not sending the email.

I have no JSON skills and there’s no example to take inspiration from for the use of params with template, so please could you tell me what I’m doing wrong both in workflow and Brevo template and what should I type in case I wanted the name to be “John” and quantity (shown in Brevo template) to be, for example, “4” ?

Thank you in advance!

Hello @f.dannunzio92,

Thank you for reaching out.

In the params_user and params_count fields, simply use the name and any additional attribute you want to include in your message, such as “John” and “4” respectively(img). Then, in your Brevo template, use {{params.user}} where you want the name “John” to appear and {{params.count}} where you want “4” to be displayed: (image) - > (image). This technique will help you automate your use case effectively.

We hope you find this information useful. Please keep us updated on your progress.

Thank you once again, and we look forward to hearing from you.
