> They told you it was for transactional email. I'm not sure how you concluded that meant "bulk mail" was okay.

It's explicitly stated to be OK in their own FAQ:


> you can send any legal, non-spam email through Mandrill, too

and on http://mandrill.com/about/

> Use Mandrill to send automated one-to-one email like password resets and welcome messages, as well as marketing emails and customized newsletters.

It must have changed from when I first signed up. The original ToS, etc. didn't state that.

It also doesn't appear to state that presently.

For instance:


> Mandrill is an email infrastructure service designed to help applications or websites that need to send transactional email like password resets, order confirmations, and welcome messages.

> Any bulk email should be sent through MailChimp, rather than Mandrill.

Yes, they changed it after it was tweeted at them.
