Any transactional email recommendations?

I'm choosing a solution to send emails from my app. I want to send a low volume of simple emails and I want it to be cheap and low complexity and low problem causing. Sending emails from your own app has IP reputation hassles but there are external services that look promising like mailgun, mailchimp, postmark.

I've used sendgrid for years but you constantly get put in IP blocks with spammers and then they tell you there's nothing they can do, but your emails (password reset etc) don't get delivered, causing frequent frustrating problems. 

Does anyone have any recommendations?

I never had any problems with Mailchimp, it’s just a very expensive solution sometimes. Recommended if you’ve got money burning a hole in your pocket.

Its a bit of a blocker so I decided to pick postmark for now. Thanks for the suggestions! It might even have a free tier for low volume where im at now. mailchimp was starting at 20$ per month, postmark 10$ for transactional emails
