I am building a messaging app for my users with email and sms notifications. Between my own knowledge and other posts on the forum, I think I can build this.
But I would love it if a user could reply directly to the email or sms notification to respond to a message (so they don’t have to open the web app / log in). Any suggestions on how to go about this? Thanks in advance!
I used Mailgun’s inbound messages for an iOS app I made about two years ago and didn’t have any issues. As long as you aren’t doing anything too complicated with the response email, it should be straightforward. I presume SendGrid and Twilio (which I’ve also used) are very similar, but I can’t comment on which to choose. Keep in mind, I’m also a lower-level software developer and do this on a regular basis. So your experience may vary.
Hi - Curious if you got the sendgrid inbound parse setup. I see the payload is multi-part form. If you got it working, I’d be curious to hear if you’d recommend POSTing this back to bubble and having bubble handle the formatting and forwarding OR if you’d recommend handling this outside of bubble with sendgrids custom code libraries.
