Very Important, before we begin, be aware that Sendgrid will only let you see and copy the api key one time, they do this for security reasons. You will not be able to go back and copy it again if you misplace it. You will have to create a new one. No a huge deal, just be aware of it. Lets begin

  1. Log into your Sendgrid Account
  2. Click "Settings"
  3. Click "API Keys"
  4. Click "Create API Key" ( Blue button in the upper left corner )
  5. Choose "General API Key"
  6. Give it a name and set the permissions ( Refer to Sendgrid support for help here, otherwise select "Full & Read Access" for everything )
  7. Click "Save"
  8. There is your api key. Copy and save it to your computer, you will never see this again!

That's all there is to it. Your Done!
