When Mailchimp announced major changes to Mandrill, the service we were using to send the vast majority of email out of CodePen, we had to make some major changes of our own. Cost was one consideration, but the most important change was that we wouldn't be allowed to send out our newsletter through Mandrill anymore, as it's not a transactional email. While we'd love to use Mailchimp proper to send out the newsletter, our cost for that would be multiple thousands of dollars per month, which is out of reach for us.
This is the story of all that, including what service we switched to, the pains of rebuilding reputation, and all that.
