In this post I am creating a similar service using SendGrid Inbound parse webhooks - which helps to listen for incoming emails. To start you need a SendGrid account. Once you create a SendGrid account, you need to authenticate a domain. For this post I have created an SendGrid account from Azure portal. You can create Authenticated domains from this Page.
