Unfortunately, your "Transactional emails" are not activated because your Sendinblue SMTP account is not active. Please send an email to contact@sendinblue.com in order to ask for SMTP account activation

Good Day

Then I sent the email as per the instruction, then I got the following message:

Hello Vusi,
Thank you for contacting us about your account and for taking the time to try Sendinblue.
After reviewing your account, we are unable to move forward with activating SMTP/transactional for your account.
Each new account undergoes a series of electronic and manual reviews that thoroughly analyze it to determine if our services would be a good fit for the potential customer. We do this to ensure that new accounts comply with our terms of service and also to ensure that the user is in a position to be successful using Sendinblue. If an account is not approved by either the electronic or the manual review, I am afraid that we are unable to move forward with validation.
This is because your account has unfortunately failed one of our security processes. Due to the potential vulnerability it can create, I am unable to provide anymore details regarding which process you failed within our system.
In such circumstances If we allow emails, this will directly impact the reputation of our shared infrastructure causing email delivery issues to our existing customers. Hence we have to deny your account.
We apologize for the inconvenience and want to let you know that this is not a judgment on your business. Rather, we've tried working with similar clients in the past and the experience was not very pleasant.
We really wanted to work with you but as per our company norms, we will not be able to move forward. We are really sorry it couldn't work out between us and wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
We would like to thank you again for considering SendinBlue for your marketing plans.
Kind regards,
Komal Baisoya | Customer Experience Representative
