Mailgun's incoming email API is awesome. We are really happy with it and we use it for a lot of domains for our customers.

Mailgun works well for transactional email. It manages all action-based emails, like the emails that go out when someone signs up or resets their password.

We use Mailgun. It is similar to MailChimp--it is really simple and easy to set up. It’s free and more customizable for developers.
