We are sending email via mandrill and need to update the status of these in a database. Is there a way to get the message ID some other result information when sending using the ‘Create Email Content’ plugin?
You’ll have to use Mandrill’s API to get results from them programatically. https://mandrillapp.com/api/docs/
At a guess, you should be able to query them with the email address you used in your send. Or, if they respond back to the email address that you sent from, you ought to be able to capture that email as well and parse it for more information.
Perhaps by making use of the Search call: https://mandrillapp.com/api/docs/messages.JSON.html#method-search
