Cloudmailin vs Mailgun: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cloudmailin as "Incoming Email for your Web App". CloudMailin allows you to receive any volume of incoming email via a Webhook. You are given an email address that will forward any incoming message to your app, as an HTTP POST, within milliseconds. You can also seamlessly check the delivery status of each of your incoming emails via the dashboard, bounce emails that you do not wish to receive and use your own domain name. On the other hand, Mailgun is detailed as "The Email Service for Developers". Mailgun is a set of powerful APIs that allow you to send, receive, track and store email effortlessly.
Cloudmailin and Mailgun can be categorized as "Transactional Email" tools.
Some of the features offered by Cloudmailin are:
- Easily receive email in Ruby on Rails, PHP, .Net, Java, Django or any language/framework we forgot. Since the email is delivered as an HTTP Post it's simple.
- See the delivery status of the emails it has delivered to your app.
- No more polling or waiting for new processes to spawn. Email can arrive in as little as a few milliseconds.
On the other hand, Mailgun provides the following key features:
- Optimized Queue
- Scheduled Delivery
- MIME Assembly

We've moved our transactional email away from Mandrill to Mailgun. We had continued using Mandrill after Mailchimp deprecated the service awhile back, because the amount of credits we were offered essentially made it free.
However, following a couple weeks of frequent downtime and poor service transparency from Mandrill, we decided it was time to make the switch. It appears they no longer had any engineers with the ability to identify the core problems.
Mailgun has been more reliable, yet not as reliable as we expected. We still see issues a few times per week with the API failing when we attempt to make a call. The Reporting UI is way better.
Very easy to setup, support was helpful, too. The free plan is great for starting out. Used it in conjunction with my cloud hosting on DigitalOcean and had no trouble getting it all setup. Still not doing high volume yet, but so far pleased.
Mailgun is the only mailing service that I trust to deliver critical user and system emails of zerotoherojs.com
It works great, and for my current usage volume it’s free.
Mails from the website frontend are sent through Mailgun, mainly because of the free plan of 10,000 emails which perfectly suits us.
I forward all e-mails to Mailgun and appreciate being able to access the objects easily as JSON.
