Decision at TrackJS about Mailgun, Mandrill

Avatar of toddhgardner

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.

After tinkering around with our own mail-server setup involving Dovecot, Postfix and SpamAssasin, we finally decided to use Mailgun because of the terrible state the current mail infrastructure is in. Even though we implemented all common security techniques (TLSA, CAA, DANE, DKIM, DMARC, SPF, TLS), our mails still arrived in spam folder of some mail service-providers.

We decided to give Mailgun a chance because of the 10k free mails each months, that are sufficient for us and the implementation as a relay was very easy and our users didn't need to do any migration.

Mails from the website frontend are sent through Mailgun, mainly because of the free plan of 10,000 emails which perfectly suits us. Mailgun

All my personal e-mail (inbound and outbound, personal, transactional and mailing lists) goes through mailgun.

This gives me full control, especially about e-mail addresses: I assign different inbound e-mail addresses for different contacts, so that I can filter SPAM by just blocking the e-mail addresses that leaked out.
