A sleeker user interface for JangoSMTP

After almost 13 months of development, we've launched a new user interface (UI) for JangoSMTP, our flagship SMTP server and transactional email service. The new interface is cleaner, more intuitive, and more aesthetically pleasing than our old interface. Additionally, there are some new features that were previously unavailable, like the ability to upload assets (images, documents, and other files) to our server.

Currently the new interface is in place for all accounts created since October 1, 2011, and will be in effect for all accounts created going forward. In a week or so, after we've confirmed that we haven't sunk the ship, we'll launch it for everyone. If you'd like to upgrade to the new UI before then you have two choices:

  1. Login as normal, and click the "New UI" link in the upper-right corner. If you want to switch back to the old UI, then manually go to
  2. Contact us and we can switch your account to permanently use the new UI.

We'll soon be publishing a detailed blog post on the new interface, but for now, here are a few screenshots.
