How to Create a Subaccount

You can create a subaccount at any time in the Mandrill web interface or via the Mandrill API. To create a new subaccount, follow these steps.

  1. Go to the Subaccounts page in your Mandrill account.
  2. Create a Subaccount.
  3. Choose a unique identifier for the subaccount such as a unique id from your own application or database. You cannot change the identifier once the subaccount has been created.
  4. Click Create Subaccount.

After you create a subaccount, you can view activity for the subaccount, set a custom quota, or delete the subaccount.

Send Email From a Subaccount

To send email from a specific subaccount, use the subaccount option (API), X-MC-Subaccount (SMTP).

The subaccount must exist when using either of these options. If you attempt to send an email from a subaccount that doesn't exist via the Mandrill API, it will fail with an error. If you attempt to send an email from a subaccount that doesn't exist via SMTP, the email will be accepted by the SMTP server but ultimately fail to send.
