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.
We use Postmark for application-specific transactional emails like notifications and digests for our users.
I forward all e-mails to Mailgun and appreciate being able to access the objects easily as JSON.
