We use Mailgun. It is similar to MailChimp--it is really simple and easy to set up. It’s free and more customizable for developers.

We use Mailgun for email infrastructure. We used to use Mandrill, but we moved to Mailgun because it’s way better.

We used to use Mandrill, which merged into MailChimp, but we’ve moved transactional emails to Mailgun and that’s been working well for us.
