Transactional e-mails are important part of any project or business, no matter if it’s a startup or a big company. But if corporations can afford the huge mailouts and the costs of big mail distribution services, startups usually look for cheaper options.
Mandrill by MailChimp is one of such options. It is a transactional mail distribution service that allows for sending up to 12,000 free e-mails per month. If you need more, there are various affordable pricing options. Mandrill supports SPF and DKIM records ensuring your emails won’t be regarded as spam by the most of e-mail services. Moreover, it allows for tracking e-mail statuses, such as sent, bounced, received, clicked, marked as spam, etc. It also supports templates and special tags for A/B testing, which is an advantage.
