Mandrill is a transactional email product from the people who brought you MailChimp. Apps can use Mandrill to send automated one-to-one email, like password reminders, shopping-cart receipts, and personalized notifications.
“This guy steals our talent, creates an email startup inside our building, and blogs about it.”

Mandrill operates as a startup within MailChimp. It’s a product that’s both complementary and potentially disruptive to MailChimp, and we think the best way to deal with that tension is to press into it as hard as we can. So we cannibalized our own engineers and isolated them from the MailChimp team, allowing them to focus all their energy on this big new opportunity. As a result, Mandrill is evolving fast. We’re excited about what’s next.
Mandrill offers advanced tracking, easy-to-understand reports, and hundreds of template options that shouldn’t be limited to bulk email newsletters. And it’s built on MailChimp’s proven email platform, which sends more than 10 billion emails a month.
Developers love the quick setup, webhooks support, and high delivery rates. Marketers love the beautiful interface, template options, tagging, and custom reports. Mandrill is the only transactional email product with a mobile app that allows you to monitor delivery and troubleshoot from wherever you are. You can send up to 12,000 emails per month absolutely free, and monthly MailChimp users get an allotment of Mandrill email credits every month, too.
