    Interesting, though how does it compare to services like GetResponse?

    GetResponse, MailChimp and similar are same in what they allow you to do, but they are different in what is available to you and how you can use the same.

    Mandrill is a service for sending emails directly by your own setup, and is owned by MailChimp. Since Get Response is similar to MailChimp I would presume that the biggest difference would be that Mandrill allows you to send your own emails through it (transactional email service), while Get Response allows you to capture the emails on the list in your Get Response account and has various features around it - does not only send emails.
