Creating and deleting servers

Our servers act like projects, which group your tests together. This page explains how to create and manage servers using the Mailosaur Dashboard and the API.

What is a server?

Servers allow you to group tests, permissions, and other settings together. You could use a server for a particular project, product, environment, or another purpose.

How do I create a new server?

To create a server, you must be an Administrator or Account Owner on the account in question. This access can be granted by another Administrator on your account if you do not already have this.

You can create a new server using the Mailosaur Dashboard, or the API.

  1. Go to the Servers page in the Mailosaur Dashboard.
  2. Click Create Server.
  3. In the page that appears, enter a server name.
  4. When you are finished, click Create.
const client = new MailosaurClient('you-api-key')

client.servers.create({
  name: 'Your server name'
})

Server limits

You can only create as many servers as your plan supports.

For information on how many servers you account supports you can refer to the Usage page in the Mailosaur Dashboard, or visit our pricing page.
