How to get your Mandrill API Key
Mandrill recently announced they were retiring Mandrill as a stand alone service and incorporate it into MailChimp as an add on service.
Mandrill was the first email service Inbound Now incorporated into it’s WordPress powered email client & at the time of this article Mandrill is still the only supported service, although there are plans to incorporate more, possibly through SendGrid, or Mandrill’s recommended replacement SparkPost.
I did some digging into MailChimp’s new integration to find out how new customers are getting their API keys.
Step I: Login to MailChimp
Step II: Access your Profile Area
Step 3: Access the Transactional area and launch Mandrill.
Step 4: Access Mandrill Settings Menu Item and click ‘SMTP & API Info’. Create your API Key.
We hope this short tutorial helps someone and stands up to the times of 2016. If you are looking for a WordPress plugin that can replace your autoresponder please consider the Inbound Now tool suite.
