I just received a mail from mandrill to say that my free mandrill account will close next month unless I sign up with mailchimp for a paid account. Apparently they're merging mandrill as a mailchimp add-on. I only use the free mandrill api for transactional mail only, so was wondering if this will continue to work - I don't need email marketing etc. so mailchimp seems a bit of overkill for my needs.
If I can't use mandrill, then I will have to use Joomla's built in smtp sending - which most of the time doesn't work, as some of the mail gets labelled as junk, sent from my own domain to yahoo, gmail etc.
Is anyone else in this situation also ?
