These past few weeks have been rough to the emailing community. A few days ago, we lost our spiritual father, Ray Tomlinson, inventor of the email, who set the “@” sign as an emailing norm. And for 15 days now, many senders of transactional email are looking for a new partner as they migrate away from Mandrill as announced big changes policy and pricing.

After their announcement, as one of their main European competitiors, Mailjet is an obvious Mandrill alternative. Because of our great community, our name started popping on the social networks:
