I was such a big fan, but have to look for other options.

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.

Mandrill is clumsy, buggy, complicated and the UI is so lousy!

Mandrill is clumsy, buggy, complicated and the UI is so lousy!
Spent 30 minutes with an overly complicated signup only to find out it doesn't work. Poorly designed software!

Prevents to wp-admin access after install
By , for WP 4.2.2

I can't login into my wordpress admin panel after activating, it was infinite page loading with blank page. I had to remove folder with the plugin to solve the issue.

Doesn't work, no information, lousy UI
By , for WP 4.1.1

Did not work from the start, just trying to add my API key gave me a white screen (fatal error).

Got to the point where I could send a test email, and that gave an error with no useful information.

Would be nice to have even an ounce of debug information available so I can fix it.

No Support Given
By , for WP 3.8

broke my pwd reset emailing
By , for WP 3.8.1

I just used this for the first time to launch a new site and didn't bother testing pwd reset process. Mandrill broke the pwd reset links and my site launch was horrendous as all users were being told to reset pwds for the new site membership (we couldn't transfer old pwds from 123 signup).

will log a case, but this is not good.
