How are you going to use Sendgrid, via the API or their SMTP relay? Can you share what steps you’ve taken so far into the integration?

Also if you’re planning to use Sendgrid with some of your sites for example a WordPress site, keep in mind that there are WordPress plugins that you can use in order to connect with Sendgrid and send your emails.

You can also use Postfix in order to send emails from your server. You can check this tutorial here:

Postfix is a mail transfer agent (MTA), an application used to send and receive email. It can be configured so that it can be used to send emails by local application only. In this tutorial, you'll install and configure Postfix on Ubuntu 20.04 as a send-only SMTP server. You'll also request free TLS certificates from Let's Encrypt for your domain and encrypt the outbound emails using them.
