Mandrill is a transactional email platform from MailChimp. There are no triggers for Mandrill - just two straightforward actions:
- Send a Message
- Send a Template
'Send a Message' will allow you to send a customized HTML or plain text email from Mandrill's server, whilst 'Send a Template' relies on populating a predefined template configured in your Mandrill account.
Connecting Your Account
Mandrill uses credentials based authentication - so you'll need to give Flow XO your API key when authorizing your account. You can get that from here in your Mandrill account:
Can I send HMTL email through Mandrill?
Yes - you'll see that there are two 'textarea' inputs for both Mandrill methods ('Send a Message' and 'Send a Template') - 'HTML' and 'Text' - which allow you to supply HTML code or plain text respectively.
