Transactional email with great open rates

2018-10-02

I use Sendgrid for all of my transactional emails and I have no complaints.

Pros

Delivery rates have been excellent since I started using it. Haven't had a need to leave the free tier up to this point.

Cons

Really no complaints with Sendgrid since I came from Mandrill.

Saddened I didn't try this earlier

2016-11-03

We converted from mandrill, and have been nothing short of ecstatic.

Pros

We use this for our transactional emails, and have realized that sendgrid provides powerful tools for analysis of delivery of transactional and marketing emails. The unsubscribe feature is excellent, and ensures we remain CAN-SPAM compliant.

Cons

The main sendgrid website is a little hard to navigate, but this isnt an issue with the app itself.

Cost effective transactional email

2018-03-22

Pros

A transactional email server is setup within minutes and available for you to send out content to your distribution list. The application provides - Graphs to show how many emails you're sending each day - What countries your sending the emails to - Open rates - Mail clients used (useful to optimise content) - Spam rates/unsubscribe rates - Great delivery rates Very cost effective.

Cons

It would have been better in my opinion to keep the two applications independent, just like Sendgrid. Whilst it doesn't make the cost materially more expensive, it does mean that you have to log into Mandrill via Mailchimp which is annoying.
