@dustyreagan a few years ago I used Interspire's autoresponder functions to do this (https://www.interspire.com/autor...). Later, switched to MailChimp automations (https://mailchimp.com/help/creat...).

@feriforgacs I've been using Sparkpost for transactional emails like "forgot password," but something like Mailchimp makes a lot of sense for marketing type emails users may want to unsubscribe from, like weekly user reports. I hate using two email services though. Do you use mailchimp for transactional emails too?

@dustyreagan no, for transactional emails I used to use Mandrill (which was a free service by MailChimp: https://mandrill.com/) for my latest projects I used MailGun (https://www.mailgun.com/). SendGrid is also on my list but I haven't tried it yet.

@dustyreagan I'm using Mailgun triggered by my back-end code. And Revue (doing migration to Substack) for the newsletters.

@dustyreagan email octopus now. We used to have our own internal system based on MailGun, then Sendgrid, but we found out that both those companies were a bit unreliable. With our very own knowledge regarding deliverability and email octopus's platform we finally moved to an outside platform. Managing html file versions internally was not fun at all.

@johan_bavaud I've been researching Mailchimp and their API. What made you switch to Active Campaign, if I may ask?

Hi @dustyreagan We were using : - Mailchimp (newsletter + automation) - Intercom (chat) - NoCrm (sales) As we grow I needed a stronger solution and I choose AC which can remplace the three above solutions. Prices are great too. MP if you need more information. Hope it helps !
