We use MailChimp and its Mandrill add-on to send transactional emails.
- Slack: #admins-mailchimp
- Create a MailChimp account associated with your GSA email address.
- File a new issue in the 18F/Infrastructure repository, stating:
- What you need the account for
- The approximate volume of emails you expect to be sending/receiving
See also: the Handbook page on Mandrill.
GSA will block any messages that are sent with a From address of
@gsa.gov, if the SMTP server is not managed (or whitelisted) by GSA. In other words, you can’t send an email with a From address of
@gsa.gov from MailChimp/Mandrill. Use a
.gsa.gov subdomain or another second-level domain instead.
