The wpMandrill plugin sends emails that are generated by WordPress through Mandrill, a transactional email service powered by MailChimp.

This plugin uses Mandrill API to send outgoing emails, with or without attachments, from your WordPress installation. It replaces the wp_mail function included with WordPress.

Emails are tracked and automatically tagged for statistics within the Mandrill Dashboard. You can also add general tags to every email sent, as well as particular tags based on selected emails defined by your requirements.

You can also use your own templates that have been added to your MailChimp account and shared with your Mandrill account.

There are a few levels of integrations between your WordPress installation and this plugin:

  1. The simplest option: Install it, configure it, and wpMandrill will start sending your emails through Mandrill.
  2. If you need to fine tune certain emails, you can change any email by creating a filter for the mandrill_payload hook.
  3. For further customization, we've exposed a function that allows you to send emails from within your plugins, instead of the regular wp_mail function: wpMandrill::mail

This plugin is currently released as beta for early adopter evaluation and finalizing of the initial feature set.
