This is really good plugin for linking between WP and Mandrill. But in getAttachmentStruct -> set_magic_quotes_runtime is causing a bit problem with newer version of PHP. If this can be fix in future update, it would be awesome. Keep up the good work guys.
but is support still active?
Mandrill is great and the service is awesome. I don't know why so many people complain about Mandrill not being free anymore. Sure, you have to have a MailChimp account, but its a small price to pay for the features. Show me an email server that has Mandrill's capabilities, customer support, integration, and template access... and is also free? If you want quality and expect devs to put in 1000s of hours to make their service awesome then its a small price to pay.
Not happy with the way Mandrill now force users to have a MailChimp account. Might not have minded if the payment structure was reasonable. So this plugin - once really useful - is no longer worthwhile. But... if you don't mind the account / payment structure, it does work very well.
It is disappointing so see Mandrill would not longer be free. You'll need to have "paid" account with MailChimp to use Mandrill. I need to send less than 100 emails per month and now mailchimp would charge me $9.95/month for this. I would now have to look for other solutions because its just too expensive.
My team was having a bit of a problem with our cloud-based managed Wordpress solution (I don't want to put them on blast, but please note that this is an issue with 'floating IP' container based solutions) - many emails were incorrectly marked as spam. With a bit of configuration in our DNS settings (probably the most difficult issue, and not Mandrill's or our managed hosting's provider's problem) - with a drop in of the API key we were back in business. Thanks to the MailChimp and Mandrill teams.
