Inside Settings >> General Settings >> Integrations Tab are the Sendgrid options:
** By default the emails on your site are sent via Sendgrid, using our Brilliant Directories account. This setup allows you to send up to 1,500 emails per month.
To increase the number of emails sent per month, select one of the two options:

2) "Use my API Key (No Limit)"
This will open up a section to add the API Key:

This means, that you can send out 10 batches containing no more than 5,000 emails per campaign. **
