We’re in the home stretch! Let’s get mail set up on Ghost.
This week, Jim and Pilot talk about Mailgun and get it set up, as well as import members into Ghost!
Watch the session 3 video here:
Join us in Discord Friday, November 18th at 12 PM ET to chat about Ghost! Bring any questions you have. We’ll be in the #hangout-voice channel.
Here’s our main documentation on Ghost on Reclaim Cloud. It’s handy to have around:

Mailgun has an article outlining their Flex plan, which includes 1,000 free emails per month:

If you are curious about our Ghost installer, how it works, and why we made it, Jim and Taylor did a stream about it a few months ago:

☑️ For next week
Sign up for a mailgun account. Note that you can uncheck the Add payment info now box to start with a free account, which has the limitation of only being able to send to 5 “authorized emails.” After signup, you will want to upgrade to their Flex plan, which is pay as you go and free for sending less than 1,000 emails a month. The point of signing up this way is, so you don’t have to sign up for a trial that you might forget to cancel and then later get billed for!
Set up Mailgun in your DNS, preferably using a subdomain. Mailgun has instructions in your account, but let us know if you have questions in Discord!Get Mailgun set up in Ghost using the add-on in Reclaim Cloud.
