Listeners

Add New Listener

Listeners allow us to measure your email sending behavior. You can either bcc a unique, secure, and private email address or authenticate one of the most popular email sending services so we can pull and analyze your sending data for you.

Note: email services vary in which data they provide in their webhooks. This summarizes which data we can collect from each listening service.
