SendGrid's cloud-based email helps keep emails out of spam folders, provides a cloud service that scales with email demands, and provides email analytics to track opens and clicks.
The Parse API can parse the attachments and contents from incoming emails and post them to a web application. The API will POST the parsed email to a URL configured in the user account. Use cases for the API include: posting blog articles via email, processing email replies in a mailing list, allowing users to upload pictures to their profile via email, submit support requests via email. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
