Mandrill or Mailgun?


(Luke Larris) #1

Was reading the Beginners Guide topic, and I saw some email providers mentioned and now I’m curious as to what the pros and cons of Mandrill vs. Mailgun are.

Currently I’m leaning more towards Mailgun because it looks great and I see some companies I like use them, but Mandrill lets you send 2k more emails for free a month, but to be honest, I don’t think I will ever break more than 200 emails a month on a few small forums.

Thoughts?

Mostly we didn’t want to be seen as explicitly promoting Mandrill to the detriment of other services. Options are always good!

FWIW we have been happy with Mandrill where it is in use.

I had bad experiences with MailGun and would recommend Mandrill or Send Grid over it. MailGun has crappy support. Product works fine most of the time, but anything goes wrong, well you better be OK with not being able to send email for a day or two.

Thanks for letting me know. So far I haven’t had any issues with it though.
