Didn't work for me so found another plugin that did.
By , for WP 4.0.1

Couldn't get this to work. The test email goes through from within the wpmandrill settings page, however, no wordpress emails are being redirected through mandrill as expected. Really wanted this to work.

Ended up installing Amazon SES DKIM Mailer Wodpress plugin and after plugging in the settings using that plugin, all WordPress emails are now being sent through mandrill.

Didn't want to knock wpmandrill too much since it appears to work for some, but just couldn't get it to work at all so that is the reason for 3 stars. If you too have an issue, give the Amazon SES DKIM Mailer Wodpress plugin a try. It worked for me.

Verified Sending Service better than WordPress default
By , for WP 4.1

Love the Ability to use a Verified Sending Service, rather than the WordPress default sending method.

However, I think sending stats should be real-time and the smtp setup/login process followed Mandrill's own practices more closely.

I also would like to see a structured integration with Gravity Forms.

Really nice, but making dashboard a bit slow
By , for WP 4.0.1

This make my dashboard to load slow.

I hope it is because of the mandrill reports on the dashboard, but i can find no option to disable the reports.

Please help me how to disable reports on wordpress dashboard as i use the mandrill android app to see the reports.
