Choosing a sender for your newsletter is an important step. The sender is visible in your sent email, allowing your contacts to recognize you easily. This is what makes your recipients feel confident about opening your newsletter. Choosing a sender is a twofold process: selecting a name (e.g. Abby from The Green Yoga) and an email address (e.g. email@example.com). You can create multiple senders.
There are several instances where you will be asked to create or choose a sender:
- When you subscribe to Brevo, you must verify your account email address. Once it has been verified, it can be used as a sender. It cannot be deleted, but you can add new senders.
- When you create an email campaign or template, you will be asked to choose a sender.
Before you start
- If you purchased one or more dedicated IPs, you first need to associate your domain with your dedicated IP. To learn more, check our dedicated article Setting up a dedicated IP in Brevo.
- We highly recommend verifying and authenticating your domain before creating a sender:
Verifying your domain allows you to approve new senders automatically without verifying each of them manually. To learn more, check our dedicated article Verify your domain to approve new senders automatically.
Authenticating your domain improves the deliverability of your email. To learn more, check our dedicated article Authenticate your domain to improve the deliverability of your emails (DKIM).
