    I'm using 3.4 beta 3

    I've set up my Mandrill account, installed the wpMandrill plugin, input my settings, and tried a test send....

    Test email send failed.

    I'm not sure where I should even start troubleshooting... Mandrill account? wpMandrill settings?

    Hey Loreen72, I'm having the same trouble and I'm not sure where to find "notify via email" to check it off. Could you point me in the right direction?

    Hey corradomatt...
    Underneath the message box - there is a SUBSCRIBE area... the Notify me checkbox is right next to SUBSCRIBE - right below the space you type your post.

    Hi,

    Please, upgrade your plugin to 1.07. It should be solved.

    Ok - tests are now sending - but I must be missing a MAJOR step somewhere. I'm not finding instructions on MailChimp or Mandrill sites on how to use once this is set up. How do I tell WPress to send a post out as an email - and how do I tell it which of my lists from MailChimp to use? see - I think I missed a step!

    PLease, read the How-To section. You can find the link to it beside the title on the Mandrill Settings page. There are at least 4 different ways to use this plugin, from simple to complex.

    Also, Mandrill is for Transactional Emails so no list is attached.
