Getting started with MailJet?

It seems MailJet is fast to use and simple to configure. So, can someone provide me the general steps required?

I have my domain associated with SMTP2GO and working fine with a private IMAP server.

Since this is all about outbound, I presume it does not involve IMAP. True?

What connecting points are needed for MailJet to operate?

I plan to get the Premium version, if I can make this work.

Are there any changes needed with my domain hosting? SMTP2GO?

Thanks

I am sorry I am late to this question that has already been accepted. However, I just want to check in and ask if your actual question was answered. I know just starting out and reading the documentation when you have not done this before may not make sense.

Mailjet, Sendgrid and MailChimp all work very similarly.
In all cases, you should set up SPF and DKIM to get your mail past anti spam tools on the receivers side https://documentation.mailjet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042908593-Getting-Started-Guide#spfdkim. Setting this up will also prevent your emails being sent from "On behalf of" https://documentation.mailjet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042561834-Why-do-I-see-the-on-behalf-of-messages-in-my-emails-

Also very important to understand will be complying with their policies https://documentation.mailjet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360043503313-Mailjet-Compliance-Guide.  Again, Mailjet, Sendgrid and Mailchimp have all very similar policies.

You are also going to want to set up a link that goes back to your own server to manage the opt outs if you are sending email using your database rather than the database on the service.

What connecting points are needed for MailJet to operate?
I do not fully understand which part you are going to use, the API, SMTP or the newsletter option. At the very least, you need to set up your sending information, tracking options and DKIM and SPF records https://documentation.mailjet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360042908593-Getting-Started-Guide#general

From there, let us know if you are going to use SMTP or the API and the details on how and we can offer better detailed advice. There is a lot to know here, please let us know where you are at and we are all happy to help.

Email On Acid acquired by Pathwire - Mailgun also has a handy spam testing tool, which is really helpful as well. There are a number of pass\fail result client filters and feedback filters covered to test
Even after reviewing documentation or working with Pathwire (Mailgun Technologies) customer support as Scott said feel free to leverage the EE community for more help.
