How to change the password for your SendGrid account created from Azure

Short Story

Long Story

SendGrid is currently one of the few possibilities you have in Azure to send e-mails from your application. If you create your SendGrid account from Azure you can start with a free plan with 25 000 free e-mails per month.

Currently the only way to change your password for your SendGrid account created from Azure is to use the “forgot password” feature from SendGrid login page:

Please note that you’ll need to enter the account username (not email address) for this form to work.

The reset-password link is delivered to the mailbox associated with your SendGrid account (be sure to set this e-mail in advance in Account Details).
