          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.

          This is by far the best way to send emails. I learned the API in under 15 minutes and started sending email right then. And best of all, it's completely free to use them for me! They give you 12,000 emails/month for free. I don't have to send much email, so I've never paid a cent. I highly recommend them.

          We use Mandrill to send transactional emails and newsletters. We've just moved from SendGrid as Mandrill has far better support for templates and also integrates really nicely with MailChimp where we can design the emails.

          We started off with AWS SES, but found it to be lacking in diagnostics and reporting. Mandrill is a quantum leap forward in this regard. Has some other really neat features carried over from MailChimp (templating).
